E-ZPass Lane Conversion Work Shifts to Eastbound Main Toll Plaza

Published: November 07, 2014

Work Begins the Evening of Nov. 10, 2014, in the 3rd Lane from the Left

Work on the next planned conversion of an “exact change” lane to an “E-ZPass only” lane on the Dulles Toll Road will commence Monday evening, Nov. 10, 2014, in the third lane from the left at the eastbound main toll plaza. The previous lane conversion to "E-ZPass only" was recently completed along the westbound ramp from the Dulles Toll Road to the Fairfax County Parkway.

The ongoing project to convert 19 toll lanes from “exact change” to “E-ZPass only” will continue into 2015. Four lanes have been converted so far, with 15 remaining to be converted. Conversions will be done one at a time until the project is complete.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, established in 1987 by the governments of Virginia and the District of Columbia, manages and operates Ronald Reagan Washington National and Washington 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, Virginia. 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, and generates more than 387,000 jobs and 4.5 percent of GDP in the National Capital Region.
