There are no stop lights on the Greenway. A trip from Leesburg to the Dulles Airport or to the Dulles Toll Road can be made in less than 15 minutes. Travelers save time and money when compared to the alternate routes.
Not only does the commuter save time, but with the elimination of at grade intersections, and separation from oncoming traffic, accident rates are lower on the Greenway than those on urban arterial roads, such as Routes 7 and 28.
The Dulles Greenway offers a reduced toll during the non-congested hours. The benefits to the motorist are a lower toll during these times, and the benefit to the Greenway is the ability to reduce the need for additional capital expenditures to service peak period demand.
Less congestion means everyone benefits, as it will cut down emission of hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide as well as reducing fuel consumption.
