Dulles Toll Road Rate Hikes Start Next Week

Starting Jan. 1, prices are scheduled to go up for those driving on the Dulles Toll Road.

The cost to passenger vehicles will increase from $2.50 to $3.25 at the main toll plaza and from $1 to $1.50 on ramps, according to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA).

The toll road is operated and maintained by the MWAA.  The toll increases were approved in November to help finance the further expansion of the Silver Line’s Phase 2 development.

The Silver Line’s expansion is financed by a combination of toll-road revenues, airport contributions and federal, state and local government appropriations.

The new rate increases are the first since 2014. But the increase has also drawn opposition from groups like airport workers union UNITE HERE Local 23, which says the cost of the Silver Line should be pushed onto airlines rather than commuters.
