The 2014 toll increase was adopted following a public comment period in 2012 that included three public meetings throughout the Dulles Corridor. The increase is necessary for the Airports Authority to operate and maintain the Dulles Toll Road and to help fund construction of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project.

Construction of Phase 1 of the Silver Line is nearing completion. Work on Phase 2 began in July, following a contract awarded in May to Capital Rail Constructors, a joint venture of Clark Construction Group and Kiewit Infrastructure South. The six Phase 2 stations will run from Wiehle Avenue in Reston to Route 772 in Loudoun County, including a station at Dulles International Airport. Construction is anticipated to be completed in 2018.

Under its agreement with the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Airports Authority assumed the responsibility to operate and maintain the Dulles Toll Road for a 50-year period beginning in November 2008.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, established in 1987 by the governments of Virginia and the District of Columbia, manages and operates Washington’s Ronald Reagan National and Dulles International airports, which together serve more than 40 million passengers a year. The Airports Authority also operates and maintains the Dulles Airport Access Road and the Dulles Toll Road and manages construction of the Silver Line project, a 23-mile extension of the Washington region’s Metrorail system into Loudoun County, Va. No tax dollars are used to operate the toll road, which is funded by toll revenues, or the airports, which are funded through aircraft landing fees, rents and revenues from concessions. The Silver Line construction is funded by a combination of toll-road revenues, airport contributions and federal, state and local government appropriations. The Airports Authority is led by a 17-member board of directors appointed by the governors of Virginia, Maryland, the mayor of Washington, D.C., and the president of the United States.
