Dulles Toll Road rates increase
A plan to boost rates on the Dulles Toll Road is expected to move forward Wednesday despite widespread opposition from commuters.
Members of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority board will act at committee meetings Wednesday on a staff recommendation that backs raising toll rates. The full board is expected to take up the increases Nov. 4. If approved, they could go into effect in January.
The plan would boost tolls from 75 cents to $1.50 at the main gate and from 50 to 75 cents at ramps by 2012. The airports authority is using toll revenue from the highway, along with federal money and taxes from special districts, to finance the $5 billion project to extend Metro service to Dulles International Airport . The authority is managing construction of the project.
