Dulles Toll Road - Toll Increases Adopted for 2013 and 2014
Updated November 14, 2012 -- Three public hearings were held in the Dulles Corridor. A 30-day public comment period about proposed toll rate increases along the Dulles Toll Road was open through September 16, 2012. The public hearings were completed, as scheduled. Information and documents from the hearings, including all public comments received, are available online for review. The Dulles Corridor Advisory Committee met and discussed the proposal on October 5. The Airports Authority Board of Directors met on November 14 and approved toll rates for 2013 and 2014. A decision for 2015 tolls was deferred due to the potential for additional Phase 2 funding sources (click here for Nov. 14 press release).
