VDOT Might Expand Toll Relief Program into Northern Virginia

WTOP News reports, “A new toll relief plan [link added] in the Hampton Roads region could foreshadow similar benefits for drivers in Northern Virginia” as “more and more toll facilities are coming to Northern Virginia: The Virginia Department of Transportation is launching rush-hour tolls next year for solo drivers on Interstate 66 inside the Capital Beltway and preparing to select a preferred private partner for construction of new Express Lanes outside the Beltway.” A VDOT official tells WTOP the state will consider extending toll discounts to Northern Virginia residents, if the Hampton Roads program is successful.
