If Virginia takes control of the DTR, the savings would be close to $2 billion s over the 30 year life of the bonds used to pay for Dulles Rail. That is $2 billion that will will not come out of the pockets of DTR users. That savings alone should be reason enough to take action on this. Delegate Randy Minchew has indicated that if Virginia assumed control of the project, billions could be saved by borrowing at reduced interest rates.
The VDOT operating permit sets a standard of "best effort". The people now managing the DTR are not accountable to either the Federal or state government and have not put forth their best effort. Here is a link to the pertinent pages.
Something has gone wrong with your Dulles Toll Road…and it must be fixed!
If you think something has gone wrong with your Dulles Toll Road, you’re right. The good news is, there is a much better way if some tough choices are made.
First, MWAA, the folks you hear about in the news wasting public dollars on travel and extravagant meals are the ones who are in control of the Toll Road. That is at the root of the problem and needs to change. MWAA answers to no one and judging by their actions, they could not care less about how their decisions affect you and me. MWAA is the middle man we cannot afford.
Higher tolls are bad for one primary reason: they force all but the most wealthy drivers off the Toll Road. The result of this is that the alternate free roads see drastically increased congestion. How bad will the increased congestion be? We really don't know, because the people planning the Dulles Rail Project hid the data.

Tysons Corner land developers, bureaucrats, politicians, and consulting firms are jamming the Dulles Rail project down the throats of Virginia taxpayers.and are riding roughshod over the law and proper procedures in the effort to get the project past the point of no return.
“They want to suck up billions of dollars that could be going now toward relieving traffic congestion on I-95, I-66, Rt. 7 and the Beltway and instead pour tax dollars into a scheme to build a rail line that will help very few Northern Virginia’s commuter. Land developers in the Tyson’s Corner area will make record profits. In the meantime, taxpayers and commuters will see taxes raised, tolls tripled and no real relief from traffic congestion."
This is what Ken Plum's dream holds for the people of Reston:
