Leaders in the District are studying the idea of potentially charging drivers a toll to enter downtown D.C. during busy times, but there appears to be strong and widespread opposition to the plan.
Maryland’s Board of Public Works — Gov. Larry Hogan, Treasurer Nancy Kopp and Comptroller Peter Franchot — is set to formally designate the planned toll lanes as a public-private partnership on May 8 and to support plans for separate phases of construction.
More drivers are sticking with the Dulles Toll Road this year than the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority expected following a toll increase meant to cover Silver Line construction costs.
Maryland will no longer accept cash at Baltimore’s Key Bridge toll booths starting this fall, part of a planned expansion of E-ZPass-only toll booths across the state’s toll facilities.
