Dulles Toll Road - Tolls Remain Steady Following Increases in 2013 and 2014
Tolls on the Dulles Toll Road are set by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which manages the road, in consultation with the Dulles Corridor Advisory Committee and following a public comment period.
The current toll rates are the result of a public process that took place in 2012. A 30-day public comment period about proposed toll rate increases along the Dulles Toll Road was open through Sept. 16, 2012, and included three public hearings were held in the Dulles Corridor. The Dulles Corridor Advisory Committee met and discussed the proposal on Oct. 5, 2012. The Airports Authority Board of Directors met on Nov. 14 and approved toll rates for 2013 and 2014. Information and documents from the hearings, including public comments received, are available online for review.
At an April 2014 meeting of its board of directors, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority reiterated its intention to keep toll rates constant through 2018. The announcement was the result of a concerted effort to reduce costs on the Silver Line Project, which is funded in part by tolls, and is predicated on receipt of a low-interest federal Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) loan and the fullfillment of a commitment of $300 million by the Commonwealth of Virginia to off-set toll increases.
Information about future MWAA public hearings about toll rates will be posted here when they are scheduled.
