Dulles Rail Set to Get Federal Approval – The Post Apparently, Virginia and the U.S. Department of Transportation has found a way to make the Dulles Corridor Metro project, tentatively called the Silver Line, meet the “Federal Transit Administration’s standards for cost efficiency, construction and expected ridership.” It appears U.S. DOT secretary Mary Peters overruled FTA. Good job, Peters that was the correct decision.
This is excellent news, I am glad that we can finally get started on a project that is long overdue.
Now, we get to see the tunnel vs. elevated argument start up again. I would love to see it underground, but I don’t see that happening at this point.
