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.
