Comment Period Open for Proposed Dulles Toll Road Rates
Comment on 2018 Proposed Toll Road Rates
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. A detailed report of all public comments submitted will be provided on this site.
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:

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 endedat 11:59 p.m. on August 3, 2018.
