Virginia officials are investigating whether the current Dulles Greenway toll, which can cost up to $4.90, is too high.

The probe comes at the request of Del. David Ramadan. The northern Virginia Republican believes the tolls violate a state code requiring rates to be reasonable.

"The prices of the tolls on the Dulles Greenway have gotten to the point that materially discourages people from using that road," he says.

The Virginia State Corporation Commission regulates the Dulles Greenway, a 14-mile private toll road that runs between Washington Dulles International Airport and Leesburg. The Commission, which approved a 10-cent rate increase in January, is also investigating the Toll Road Investors Partnership, which operates the Greenway.
