Tunnel toll bills are in the mail, according to Elizabeth River Tunnels.

The first invoices for “pay by plate” customers who used the Midtown and Downtown Tunnels in February were sent out this weekend.

The tolls began one month ago, on Feb. 1.

The bills will have a graphic that shows customers how much they could have saved for the month if they had an E-ZPass.

ERT also announced Saturday that “pay by plate” customers will get a 50 percent discount on the processing fee for tolls incurred in February if they convert to an E-ZPass or show proof they have an E-ZPass transponder.

To get the discount, drivers can call 855-ERT-ROAD or go to the Elizabeth River Tunnels Customer Service Center at 700 Port Centre Parkway in Portsmouth.

Representatives from ERT will also temporarily be located at the E-ZPass Customer Service Centers at 1701 Church St., Norfolk and 4010 Victory Blvd., Portsmouth.
