CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) - Drivers who don't have E-ZPass will soon have fewer toll lanes to choose from in the Dulles Toll Road.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which operates the road, announced Wednesday that it will convert 19 lanes into "E-ZPass only" lanes. The unattended lanes had previously accepted cash from drivers who had exact change.

The project will begin on Sept. 2. The lanes will be converted one at a time, with each conversion taking 2-to-4 weeks.

The airports authority says the project will ease congestion and enhance convenience for drivers. Each toll plaza will still have one full-service lane where drivers can pay with cash and get change.
