South Norfolk Jordan Bridge (SNJB), owned and operated by United Bridge Partners, announces an annual toll rate increase effective January 1, 2023. SNJB continues to offer the lowest rate to drivers who travel with a valid E-ZPass. New standard travel fees take effect midnight on Saturday, December 31, 2022.
- E-ZPass drivers of two-axle passenger vehicles, mopeds, and motorcycles will be debited $2.99 for each crossing from their valid prepaid account, a change of 24 cents per trip.
- Pay-by-Plate customers with two-axle passenger vehicles, mopeds, and motorcycles will be invoiced by mail at $6.95 per trip approximately 30 days after travel.
- For vehicles with three or more axles (including cars with trailers), toll rates start at $6.65 per crossing and may increase based on the time of travel and method of payment. Peak hours are 5:30-9:00 a.m. and 2:30-7:00 p.m. on weekdays. Off-peak rates apply during all other weekday hours, weekends, and select federal holidays (New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4th/Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day). Additional fees apply to Pay-by-Plate transactions.
In light of the Wheelabrator fire that occurred on December 16, the Jordan Bridge has remained open on a limited basis (and tolling) to support NNSY parking and local businesses immediately adjacent to the Jordan Bridge via Chesapeake/I-464. Drivers will not experience any increase in tolls as a result of traffic/revenue loss caused by this incident. SNJB will address any traffic/revenue loss with the responsible parties.
This year the South Norfolk Jordan Bridge commemorates a decade of providing a reliable route and time-saving route across the Elizabeth River’s Southern Branch. The private bridge was built and operates without any local, state, or federal funding.
