Cars drive along the Dulles Toll Road

Drivers are seeing a 25-cent increase in tolls on the Dulles Toll Road beginning Jan. 1. The toll will now cost $1.50 at the main plaza. Tolls at on and off ramps remain the same, at 75 cents.

According to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, the increase helps to operate and maintain the toll road and to construct the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project. Funding for that effort comes from Dulles Toll Road revenues, along with money from the federal and local government.
