Commonwealth Transportation Board to Receive Public Comment on Proposed Toll Increase for Dulles Toll Road
On Thursday, Feb. 10, at 7:30 p.m., Fairfax County supervisor for the Hunter Mill District, Cathy Hudgins, will provide an opportunity for citizens to give public comments to the Commonwealth Transportation Board on the proposed state funding for the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project. The meeting will be held in the Community Room of the North County Governmental Center, 12000 Bowman Towne Drive, Reston. Transportation Board member Kate Hanley will be on hand, and other CTB members have been invited to hear from the public and answer questions.
The Commonwealth Transportation Board will consider the 25-cent toll increase on the Dulles Toll Road at its Feb. 17 meeting at the VDOT Central Office Auditorium at 1221 E. Broad St., Richmond. Tolls would total 50 cents on ramps and 75 cents at the toll plaza. Revenues from the proposed increase would be dedicated to help fund Virginia’s 25 percent share of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project, slated for construction as early as 2006.
The public can get more information on the proposed toll increase and provide e-mail comments at www.virginiadot.org. In addition, there are various other opportunities for the CTB to receive comments. These include:
