2018 Toll Road Rate Setting Process

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority has completed the process of soliciting comments from the community about proposed toll rate increases along the Dulles Toll Road. The public comment period ended August 3 at 11:59 p.m. Read a detailed report of all public comments here.



The public comment period has closed for proposed toll rate increases. Read a detailed report on the public comments here: Dulles Toll Road Proposed Toll Rate Increases Report on Public Comments.

Toll rates on the Dulles Toll Road are set by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which is responsible for operating, maintaining and improving the toll road. Toll rates may be adjusted by the Airports Authority only after completion of a public rate-setting process during which the Airports Authority conducts one or more public hearings on proposed rate adjustments and obtains comments on the adjustments from the public. In addition, toll rates may be adjusted only after the Airports Authority consults with the Dulles Corridor Advisory Committee. The current toll rates are the result of a public rate setting process that took place in 2012.

In 2018, the Airports Authority is considering adjustments to the Dulles Toll Road toll rates using the rate setting process noted above. In July 2018, the Airports Authority conducted three public hearings on a published set of proposed toll rate adjustments as follows:

Thursday, July 19, 2018

The Airports Authority's process to increase toll rates included an opportunity to all members of the public to make written comments on the proposed adjustments during the public hearings and on this website. The public comment period began on July 2, 2018 and ended at 11:59 p.m. on August 3, 2018. 

Materials related to the proposed adjustments are as follows:

Final action on the proposed rate adjustments was taken by the Airports Authority Board of Directors in November 2018.
