Dulles Toll Road Main Plaza/Credit: MWAADulles Toll Road users take note: work on the planned conversion of an exact change lane to an E-ZPass only lane at the eastbound main toll plaza begins tonight.

The work will affect the third lane from the left. The Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority wants to remind drivers to be patient or find alternate routes this evening as work may impact traffic.

The previous lane conversion to “E-ZPass only” was recently completed along the westbound ramp from the Dulles Toll Road to the Fairfax County Parkway.

The ongoing project to convert 19 toll lanes from exact change to E-ZPass only will continue into 2015, MWAA officials said. Four lanes have been converted so far, with 15 remaining to be converted. Conversions will be done one at a time until the project is complete.

After the main plaza eastbound lane is complete, the next lane scheduled for conversion is the far right lane at Westbound Hunter Mill Road, one of the main Reston exits. To keep up with Toll Road plans, MWAA’s Dulles Toll Road page.

    Why do they need to do so much work to convert the lanes? All they did back home when they did something similar was put a bag over the coin basket and change the signage.

      They may have to remove or widen the safety barriers and also modify the tag sensors and cameras. Wish they would make these lanes high-speed and wish they would add more toll lanes where they have the space.
