E-ZPASS SERVICES NOW AVAILABLE AT THE CHESAPEAKE DMV
Transponders can be obtained immediately for opening of Jordan Bridge

RICHMOND – Motorists may sign up for E-ZPass and acquire a transponder at the Chesapeake Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Customer Service Center, 813 Greenbrier Parkway, Chesapeake.   

DMV is providing a separate “walk-up” window for E-ZPass staff to conduct transactions, eliminating the need for customers to first obtain a number from the DMV information desk for service.

The Jordan Bridge in Hampton Roads is expected to begin collecting tolls this summer. For more information on the project go to: www.southnorfolkjordanbridge.com.

E-ZPass is an electronic toll collection system that automatically deducts the toll from a customer’s prepaid account. 

E-ZPass lanes are available on the nine toll roads and bridges in Virginia – plus 13 participating E-ZPass states. 

In addition to obtaining an E-ZPass transponder at the Chesapeake DMV, customers may also sign up or find additional service outlets at www.EZPassVA.com.

The New South Norfolk Jordan Bridge crosses the southern branch of the Elizabeth River.  

Opening this summer, the new bridge will replace the existing Jordan Bridge that was closed in November 2008.  

The new bridge uses no local, state or federal money. It is a private bridge.  

This new toll facility will accept E-ZPass, working through Virginia’s E-ZPass program, to collect tolls.
