Currently, drivers pay $4.75 to take the Dulles Toll Road, in January that fee is likely to increase to $6.00, each way, another $50 a month for commuters. The increase will go to pay for the Silver Line extension to Dulles airport and Loudoun County. Rates would increase by $1.25, rising 75 cents at the main toll plaza and 50 cents at off-ramps. With gas prices increasing and tolls increasing, it’s getting very expensive to commute from Loudoun County.
It is not known when the Silver line Metro extension might open. Its original opening date was the summer of 2018, 4 years ago.
“Two public hearings have been planned, on July 18 and 21. And a 30-day public comment period will be held, before the Board of Directors scheduled vote on Nov. 16. If passed, the toll increase would go into effect Jan. 1, 2023.“
( Many of us predicted such Silver Line delays and cost increases when Loudoun County Board of Supervisors proposed and passed Metro to Loudoun back in 2012.)
