Re: $34.50 toll for 10 miles of travel in Northern Virgi8nia

What will be interesting is to see how much traffic gets siphoned off to alternative routes, of which there are several, and toll free. Not the exact analogy, but if the Tobin was free and the tunnels charged $15, which route will drivers migrate to when coming in to Boston.

Metro (subway) ridership was down slightly at the four stations most affected. There was no bailout traffic (at least in the morning), though it does appear there was bailout in the afternoon rush, because the peak fare was $9.
