Wolf: Dulles Greenway is 'highway robbery'
Derek Kravitz reports on the Dr. Gridlock blog that U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) has once again urged Virginia transportation officials to reduce toll fares on the Dulles Greenway, calling fare hikes in recent years "highway robbery."
It's a common refrain for Wolf, a longtime critic of the Greenway plan who has said the toll road has been unfairly aided by the "poorly drafted" 1988 law and heavy lobbying at the state level against proposals that would put an inflation-based toll-increase structure in place.
Wolf sent a letter Wednesday to Virginia Transportation Secretary Sean T. Connaughton. Greenway fares now cost as much as $4.50 each way during rush hour commutes.
