CHESAPEAKE, Va. – Tolls will resume for northbound lanes of the Chesapeake Expressway at 6 a.m. Saturday, the City of Chesapeake said.

Tolls were suspended September 3 when a mandatory evacuation order was issued for Dare County and parts of Currituck County.

Tolls will resume for the southbound Chesapeake Expressway at 10 p.m. Sunday, and tolls for the Dominion Boulevard Veterans Bridge (Route 17) will resume at 8 p.m. Friday.

The Route 168 Chesapeake Expressway connects to NC-168, which is a primary evacuation route for the Outer Banks, the city said.

Entry into Dare County from Highway 158 across the Wright Memorial Bridge is still restricted to only those with a Priority 1 Critical Needs Pass, according to the Currituck County government.
