Virginia legislators amend I-81 Corridor improvement bill

February 01, 2019 9:31 AM | Brandon Moree (Administrator)

On Thursday, the the Virginia House Transportation Committee passed a substitute version of House Bill 2718 where it will now move to the House floor.

The original version of the bill, which can be read here, explicitly outlined the implementation of tolling, saying: "[T]he General Assembly hereby authorizes the Board to impose and collect tolls for the use of Interstate 81." (From §33.2-3602)

The substitute version of the bill eliminated any direct use of the term "tolls" but still charges the Interstate 81 Corridor Improvement Program, which was adopted Dec. 5, 2018, to "Include a financing plan to support such allocation..." (from §33.2-3602, substitute).

The bill is still several steps away from being signed into law. That process in the state of Virginia is outlined here.
