The plan would boost tolls on the Dulles toll road from 75 cents to $1.50 at the main gate, and from 50 cents to 75 cents at the ramps, by 2012. The Metropolitan Airports Authority board, which operates the road, will vote on the proposal.
The board first will consider a report summarizing public comments. Of the more than 200 respondents, three-quarters say they oppose the hikes.
The report also includes rebuttals by the airport authority's administrative staff, who say the new rates align with those of other toll roads of comparable lengths in Virginia and other states.
The airport's authority is using highway tolls, federal money and special tax districts to finance the $5 billion extension of Metro to Dulles International Airport.
