SCC Will Receive Comments on Dulles Greenway Toll Increase Request

The State Corporation Commission (SCC) will receive comments on a request by the owners of the Dulles Greenway to adjust the tolls charged for traveling the 14-mile roadway that runs between Washington Dulles International Airport and Leesburg. Comments must be received by Feb. 5.

Toll Road Investors Partnership II (TRIP II) filed its application on December 30, 2015, and pursuant to §56-542 I of the Code of Virginia, is asking for the annual percentage increase in tolls of 2.8% as well as an additional increase in tolls of $0.0182 to recover an increase in property taxes paid by TRIP II in 2015.

For a two-axle vehicle, the proposed increase equates to 10 cents, from $4.30 to $4.40. During peak morning and afternoon weekday periods, the proposed increase is 15 cents, from $5.20 to $5.35.

Written comments on the request must be submitted by Feb. 5, 2016. All correspondence should be sent to the Clerk of the State Corporation Commission, Document Control Center, P.O. Box 2118, Richmond, Virginia 23218-2118, and refer to case number PUE-2015-00137.

Interested persons desiring to submit comments electronically may do so at the SCC's website: Click on the PUBLIC COMMENTS/NOTICES link and then the SUBMIT COMMENTS button for case number PUE-2015-00137.

SCC staff has been directed to investigate the application and file a report on February 5, 2016. The Commission will then issue an order on the company's request.
