Roll Back Tolls on Dulles Greenway

Roll Back Tolls on Dulles Greenway

    1. Russell Mokhiber
    2. Petition by

      Russell Mokhiber

      Berkeley Springs, WV

Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell

House Speaker William Howell

Senate Majority Leader Tommy Norment

 

The Dulles Greenway is a privately owned highway between Leesburg, Virginia and Dulles Airport.

 

The Greenway is owned by Toll Road Investors Partnership II (TRIP II) , which in turn is owned by the Australian private firm Macquarie Group.

 

Tolls on the Dulles Greenway are now $5.55 during rush hour -- or 40 cents a mile.

 

Compare that to most major toll highways -- less than 10 cents a mile.

 

We urge you to take action to roll back the outrageous tolls on the Dulles Greenway.

 

Congressman Frank Wolf (R-Virginia) calls the tolls "highway robbery."
West Virginia singer Angela Petry agrees.

 

She has released a song about the Greenway called "Highway Robbery."

 

"It's a disgrace," Wolf said. "Everyone knows that these tolls are ripping people off and there's not much we can do about it."

 

But there is something you can do about.

 

You can -- and should -- pass a law that rolls back the tolls on this "Commonwealth" highway.

      We already pay high enough taxes. In addition, this toll money goes over seas and doesn't even stay in the US

      My family and I travel into DC frequently for both pleasure and work. The toll is outrageously exaggerated for the mileage traveled.

      My two road options for my work commute are either Route 7 - which adds 45 minutes onto my commute or the Greenway, which costs me an arm and a leg.

      One way from Lessburg to Sterling almost $5.00 a trip, that SUCKS!!!! Lower fees then more cars, more cars more money! Raising fees only makes people want to stay off it more!

      I commute to school using the Dulles Toll Road as well as the Greenway 4 days a week during peak rush hour times(both beginning and tail end) and I simply cant afford to keep paying the $5.55 toll both ways when I could spend the extra money on gas which I eat up as well
