Dulles Advisory Committee to Issue Toll Hike Opinion
Advisory group to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority will discuss proposed rate increases, financing
As questions over Dulles toll increases and Silver Line funding continue, the Dulles Corridor Advisory Committee (DCAC) — which advises the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority on the Dulles Corridor — is preparing to give its own opinion on the issues.
The group will meet at 11 a.m. Oct. 5 in Herndon to hear updates about finance and construction of the Silver Line metrorail project, and also make recommendations on proposed toll rate hikes.
The committee, formed in 2007, has eight members: two each from Loudoun and Fairfax Counties, the Commonwealth of Virginia and the airports authority.
Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chair Sharon Bulova is serving as chair of the committee; County Executive Ed Long also serves on the committee.
Loudoun County is represented by Board of Supervisors Chair Scott K. York and County Administrator Tim Hemstreet.
The group has met twice a year for the past several years. While the committee's purview includes any and all improvements to the corridor, the roadway and changes in toll structure, much of its discussion has involved Metrorail progress.
DCAC's meeting will begin at 11 a.m. Oct. 5 at The Center for Innovative Technology – CIT Complex, The Briefing Room (Level P-1), 2214 Rock Hill Road, Herndon. The meeting is open to the public.
