Chesapeake, VA – During the recent extended closure of the Gilmerton Bridge, the South Norfolk Jordan Bridge offered “Dollar Off Days” to help introduce rerouted drivers to the new East-West travel route.

The promotion dropped travel fees to as low as $1 for E-ZPass customers using the Jordan Bridge during the Gilmerton’s closure and was set to expire on Sunday at midnight.

“We’ve received an overwhelming response from the community regarding E-ZPass enrollment, the promotional toll rates and their desire to continue using the JordanBridge as a preferred route,” says General Manager Kevin Crum.

“As a result, we’re pleased to extend the Dollar Off promotional rates for all drivers through the end of this month.”

Dollar Off Days are offered through midnight on Thursday, January 31, 2013.

Drivers with an E-ZPass will enjoy a $1 rate, SNJB Pay by Plate customers pay $2 per crossing and Pay by Mail drivers will receive an invoice for $3.

To help drivers take advantage of the lowest travel fees, Jordan Bridge staff also are hosting E-ZPass On-the-Go enrollment events on weekdays from 2 – 5 p.m. at the corner of Victory Boulevard and Elm Avenue in Portsmouth, just outside NNSY Gate 36.

E-ZPass is the electronic collection system that makes paying travel fees fast and easy by automatically deducting fees from a prepaid account. Just open an account and install the transponder to conveniently travel on the South Norfolk Jordan Bridge and nine other toll roads and bridges in Virginia, plus an additional 14 participating E-ZPass states from North Carolina to Maine. 

E-ZPass also is available at the E-ZPassServiceCenter located inside the Chesapeake DMV at 813 Greenbrier Parkway, across from ChesapeakeCityPark. New accounts also can be activated online at, or call 1-877-762-7824 to order an E-ZPass by mail.
