Big Toll Hikes Coming Soon . . .

UPDATE:  Adam Tuss, WTOP, reports similar information here:   Driving the Dulles Toll Road could triple by 2018.

A person who attended this morning's MWAA committee meetings advised that MWAA is considering raising the full toll on the Dulles Toll Road to $4.00 next year.  This includes a $1.00 increase on all the ramps and a $.75 increase at the main toll plaza.

Also, the Washington Post is reporting that MWAA is considering tripling tolls by 2018--$6.75 full toll each way:
New projections show that one-way rates on the Dulles Toll Road could triple to $6.75 by 2018 to bring in the necessary funds to pay for extending Metrorail to Dulles International Airport and Loudoun County.

The projections were released Wednesday at a board meeting of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which operates not only Dulles and Reagan airports but also the toll road. It also oversees construction of Metro’s Silver Line expansion.
