Dulles Toll Road New Rate Goes Into Effect on January 1

From MWAA:

Effective January 1, 2012, the toll rate on the Dulles Toll Road will increase by 25 cents at the Main Toll Plaza to $1.50. Toll rates on the on/off ramps will remain 75 cents.

A three-year schedule for new toll rates was approved by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Board of Directors in November 2009 after conducting a series of public hearings. This included toll rate increases of 25 cents at the Main Toll Plaza each January through 2012. Public hearings and Board action would be required for any future rate changes along the Toll Road beyond 2012.

Traffic Signals Ready for Holiday Shoppers in Northern Virginia

Traffic Signals Ready for Holiday Shoppers in Northern Virginia

From VDOT News:

FREDERICKSBURG—The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will activate its annual holiday traffic signal timing pattern to help motorists travel around 16 major shopping centers in Northern Virginia from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day.

Holiday signal timing in Northern Virginia has been in place for more than a decade to accommodate a seasonal influx of vehicles near shopping areas. The temporary pattern is created using time- and intersection-specific traffic data from previous years.

VDOT adjusts the signal timing at more than 200 intersections in Northern Virginia. Engineers will also use traffic cameras to monitor conditions around especially congested areas such as Tysons Corner and make adjustments to help keep traffic moving.
