    Dates set for Dulles Greenway rates hearing

    The State Corporation Commission will host public hearings in Loudoun County and Richmond to hear from the public about the toll rates along the Dulles Greenway.

    The Loudoun hearings will be held April 9 at Loudoun Valley High School in Purcellville at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.. The Richmond hearing will be July 18 at 10 a.m. at the commission's courtroom located in the Tyler Building at 1300 E. Main St.

    Those wishing to speak are asked to appear 15 minutes before the hearings begin and sign up with the commission's bailiff.

    Del. David Ramadan (R-87th) initiated the complaint against the toll rates and has urged the SCC to look into the matter.

    According to the SCC, the rates must: be reasonable to the user in relation to the benefit obtained; not materially discourage use of the roadway by the public; and provide the operator no more than a reasonable return as determined by the Commission.

    Anyone interested in submitting written comments must do so by July 9 by going to scc.virginia.gov/case or by mailing comments to Joel H. Peck, Clerk, State Corporation Commission, c/o Document Control Center, P.O. Box 2118, Richmond, Va., 23218-2118. The case number is PUE-2013-00011.

    The Greenway is owned by Toll Road Investors Partnership (TRIP) II and maintained by Macquarie Atlas Roads, an Australian group that owns a majority stake in its partnership with TRIP II.

    Rates to use the nearly 15-mile road, without an EZ-Pass, range from around $3 to just less than $5.
