Commuters in Northern Virginia experience some of the worst traffic in the country –- with backups in some areas averaging more than half an hour. A new solution debuted this week: opening rush hour-only toll lanes on the stretch of Interstate 66 that cuts through Northern Virginia. But the dynamic pricing system is pushing up the cost of commuting, and some drivers saw tolls of more than $30 on the first day of operation. Kojo speaks with Virginia’s transportation secretary and a local commuter about the state’s newest project to relieve traffic and the cost it poses to individual drivers.
