Question about the Dulles Toll Road
Posted by: FFXU Historian ()
Date: June 23, 2014 10:50AM

Hi everyone, I just wanted to know did the Dulles Toll Road come before the Dulles Access Road or were they built at the same time. Also, does anybody have any pictures of the area before the toll road was built?

Access Road was built after the Toll Road in response to public demand for a workaround of the toll gates.

The Dulles Toll road was built latter. A number of high level politicians lived in Great Falls and Reston. They were using the airport road to come from DC by driving to the airport and turning around to come back to Reston or RT28.

The airport police got wise and started cracking down by watching cars that never stopped at the airport and left, the police then ticketing them.

The politicians they tried to set a bill that would allow the FAA to open the road to non-airport traffic. The FAA refused.

The politicians then began working on plans for the toll road. In the beginning nobody wanted to use the toll road and it was the first toll road near DC. People would drive around the toll road on back roads and RT7. Eventually people warmed up to the idea of a toll road and started using it.

The Access Road was built concurrent with the airport in the 1960's, but it only went as far as 495. The Toll Road was built in 1984.
