2022 Toll Road Rate Setting Process

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority will provide information in public sessions and solicit comments from the community about proposed toll rate increases along the Dulles Toll Road.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority is conducting two public hearings, one virtual and one in-person, to inform the public and solicit comments about proposed amendments to regulations that would, effective January 1, 2023, (i) increase the toll rates for use of the Dulles Toll Road (DTR) and (ii) authorize collection of administrative fees to recover costs incurred by the Airports Authority to invoice toll road customers who use the pay-by-plate (license plate imaging) toll payment option.
