Contract Set for Rail Line To Dulles – The Post
The likelihood of the Metro being extended through Tysons via a tunnel is much less following Friday’s agreement (costs breakdown) between the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation and Dulles Transit Partners to build the line.
While an elevated line is preferable to no line, I am not convinced the tunnel option was ever given a proper and thorough review. It would be unfortunate if it turns out the elevated option was chosen to save pennies or even nickels on the dollar.
