“Elizabeth River Crossings offers toll fee discount to pay-by-plate users”

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) –  Starting Wednesday morning, Elizabeth River Crossings is offering a big discount for drivers with tolls fees.

If pay your bill by December 31st, you can receive 50 percent off your toll bill. The discount applies to pay-by-plate users and lasts until the end of the year.

Elizabeth River Crossings says the discounted rate is for processing and administrative fees. However, it does not apply to overdue unpaid final notices which have been passed on to collection agencies.

There are four different ways ERC says you can pay those bills – online, in person, by phone, or by mail.

The discounted rate comes right before the company increases tolls by 20 percent to cross the Elizabeth River next month. Starting January 1 tolls will go from $1.25 to $1.50 each way during peak hours.
