Dulles Toll Road Rate Increase Hearings Set

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority is seeking to increase toll rates and add a new fee for pay-by-plate on the Dulles Toll Road, and has set two public hearings.

Starting Jan. 1, the airports authority plans to hike tolls for cars at the main line plaza near Tyson’s Corner from $3.25 to $4, and on ramps from $1.50 to $2. The new fee for drivers without an E-ZPass charged by plate number is proposed to be up to double the base toll.

The airports authority also plans to increase tolls on vehicles with three-axles or more, which pay higher rates depending on the number of axles.

The airports authority plans one in-person public hearing and one virtual public hearing. The virtual public hearing is scheduled Tuesday, June 12 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Zoom. To join, click https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86551161067?pwd=SDZXZHFZT1BMSmVTSHVJYTkrZk9hdz09  and enter passcode 174277, or call 1-301-715-8592. The Webinar ID is 865 5116 1067 and the passcode is 174277.

The in-person public hearing will be Monday, July 18 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Washington Dulles Airport Marriott, 45020 Aviation Drive.

    These proposed toll hikes are highway robbery (pun intended). They’re another reason to abandon your car & pursue alternate means of transportation. That could include cycling, walking, carpooling, roller blading, public transit, horseback riding, using a scooter or using a golf cart. Times like these call for creativity. Happy Fourth of July Loudoun!

    Thank Sen. Tim Kaine for providing this ATM machine to the MWAA, at the expense of Loudoun families. .

    I thought once the road was paid for the tolls would go away. Instead they want more money! Plus no accountability of the money. This should not be a toll road or the tolls should be half of what they are. It’s a prime example of “highway robbery”!

    So….at what point will our representatives stop this theft? It’s insane that the toll road is already this expensive, and now it will be even more expensive! Are they trying to make it so where no one drives on the road? Of course, they realize that people will have to take that road and thus have to pay these toll prices, so what do they care? The toll road is a joke, as well as, the greenway for how expensive this major roadway is.

    The toll was $0.50 when I moved here. You can remind Senator Kaine in his next election that he unilaterally signed over the toll collection to MWAA. The tolls were supposed to get phased out (not phased up!) while he was governor, but he slid his union buddies a sweet deal while he was governor and let them slap big tolls on Virginians.

    If you REALLY don’t like being a VICTIM then ask your Commissioner of Revenue and the BOS WHY they continue to Exempt the MWAA airport parking lots from property taxes? Is Dulles Airport REALLY in DC or are these lots in Loudoun? Do our federal reps do anything other than pander for re-election? If these parking lots paid their fair share of property taxes Loudoun would have no problem supporting LCPS to even a greater extent and fix the traffic!!!!!!! WAKE UP!
