State Corporation Commission concludes investigation of Dulles Greenway toll rates

economic-forecast-headerThe State Corporation Commission (SCC) has concluded an investigation of the current toll rates charged by the operator of the Dulles Greenway in Loudoun County and finds that proposed new tolls are not required to be substituted for the existing tolls.

In its final order, the SCC stated “Based on the evidence presented by TRIP II (both quantitative and qualitative), we have concluded that the tolls – individually and collectively – meet the statutory requirements under § 56-542 D (of the Code of Virginia).”

The Dulles Greenway is a 14-mile private toll road that runs between Washington Dulles International Airport and Leesburg and is operated by Toll Road Investors Partnership II (TRIP II).

In addition, the SCC did not direct the toll road operator to perform a study of distance-based tolls at this time. However, the Commission directed TRIP II to confer with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) on the efficacy of performing such studies. The company will file a report with the SCC in 180 days on the results of its discussions with VDOT.
