An effort organized by the trucking industry is trying to pressure Virginia to abandon its plan to install tolling on Interstate 95 to generate transportation revenue.
The National Association of Truck Stop Operators, the American Trucking Association and the Virginia Trucking Association have launched a campaign to get the Virginia Department of Transportation to drop its proposed plan to build a toll facility on I-95 in Sussex County. The toll would be $4 for passenger vehicles and $12 for tractor-trailers.
The anti-toll initiative involves a website, online petition and a Facebook page.
The Federal Highway Administration last fall gave VDOT preliminary approval to start a pilot tolling program on I-95 to raise money for expanding highway capacity and transportation improvements. The only facility proposed so far is the Sussex site.
