The State Corporation Commission announced today it will conduct public hearings on the toll rates charged by Dulles Greenway.

The SCC last month agreed to investigate the toll rate following a complaint filed by Del. David Ramadan (R-87).

The hearings will be held in Loudoun and Richmond.

The Loudoun hearing will be held at Loudoun Valley High School in Purcellville Tuesday, April 9. There will be two sessions beginning at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The public hearing will continue at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, July 18, in Richmond at the SCC’s second floor courtroom located in the Tyler Building at 1300 E. Main St.

The SCC advises those who wish to provide testimony to arrive early and sign in with the SCC bailiff. The audio of the Richmond hearing will be webcast via the SCC website.

Written comments must be submitted by July 9. All correspondence should be sent to the Clerk of the State Corporation Commission, Document Control Center, P.O. Box 2118, Richmond, Virginia 23218-2118, and refer to case number PUE-2013-00011.

Comments may be sent electronically via the SCC’s website: www.scc.virginia.gov/case. Click on the "public comments/notices" link and then the "submit comments" button for case number PUE-2013-00011.

Welcome to the discussion.

    Aren't they supposed to investigate before they approve toll rate increases? So know they wiull investigate their own approval process, good luck with that toll road payers.

    What is the point here again? The rates are already too high for most folks to regularly use it. What is supposed to be accomplished here? If enough people complain, will the SCC will kick it down to $2.00? Of course not. So why bother showing up to this meeting?

    Again, what constitutes a usual review? You would think this would just involve the SCC reviewing their previous due diligence in reviewing the Greenway's toll requests.
