Virginia transportation officials have scheduled three public meetings next month on the state's proposal to put tolls on Interstate 95 south of Richmond. The money would be used to fund improvements to the highway.

The Virginia Department of Transportation has scheduled meetings for Dec. 10 in Sussex, Dec. 12 in Chester and Dec. 17 in Fredericksburg to give the public an update on the proposal.

The agency says that I-95 has $12 billion in capacity, rehabilitation and safety needs, but it currently can fund about $2 billion of that work over the next 25 years.

The Federal Highway Administration is reviewing the state's application to place tolls on the highway.
