The airport authority, which operates the toll road and will be using the revenue to fund the $2.7-billion Phase 2 of the Silver Line Metro Project, has proposed rates of $2.75 in 2013, $3.50 in 2014 and $4.50 in 2015.
The toll rates will be an important component in MWAA’s financing plan for Phase 2, which will extend the Silver LIne beyond Wiehle Avenue to Washington Dulles International Airport and into Loudoun County.
MWAA has scheduled three hearings to get input from citizens about the rate increases. The first will be from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sept. 6 at Stone Bridge High School in Ashburn. The other two hearings will be held on Sept. 12 at South Lakes High School in Reston and Sept. 13 at Spring Hill Elementary School in McLean, both from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The authority has more information on its website, including additional areas for the public to address their opinions of the hikes.
