WP: Dulles Toll Increase Proposed

My recollection is that the tolls on the Dulles Toll Road were "promised" to last only as long as necessary to pay off the bonds that financed the construction of the Dulles Toll Road.

My memory must be faulty, though, because the WP omits any reference to such a "promise" when it reports that Virginia's Commonwealth Transportation Board is considering raising tolls on the Dulles Toll Road to pay for MetroRail.

UPDATE: The National Taxpayers Union comments on and provides a communication tool for this topic.
