Meeting on Phase 2 of Dulles Metro
The latest design plans for the second phase of the Metro rail extension to Dulles International Airport will be presented during a public meeting Tuesday night.
The 11.6-mile section will be built from Wiehle Avenue on the eastern edge of Reston in Fairfax County to Route 772 in Ashburn in eastern Loudoun County. The first phase, which includes four stops in Tysons Corner, is under construction.
The workshop will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Loudoun Heritage Farm Museum located at 21668 Heritage Farm Lane in Sterling. Another workshop was held Monday. The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which is managing the project, is hosting the workshops.
The open house-style meetings allow the public to discuss the future Metro rail stations planned, including an alternate location on the site of the Dulles Airport station. The other five stations will be located near Reston Parkway, the Herndon-Monroe area, Route 28, Route 606 and Route 772.
