Lawmaker: Virginia attorney general to probe late fees charged for unpaid tunnel toll invoices


NORFOLK, Virginia — A lawmaker says state Attorney General Mark Herring's office will look into late fees that Elizabeth River Crossings adds to motorists' bills on unpaid tunnel toll invoices.

Sen. Kenny Alexander told The Virginian-Pilot ( that Herring's office agreed to research the $25 fees that are tacked on when an invoice goes unpaid for more than 30 days and again when a second violation notice is sent.

Elizabeth River Crossings CEO Greg Woodsmall says the late fees are legal and that revenue from them helps make up for unpaid tolls.

Elizabeth River Crossings operates the Downtown and Midtown tunnels in Hampton Roads.
