Public meetings set on Dulles Metro

Kafia Hosh

The latest design plans for the second phase of the Metro rail extension to Dulles International Airport will be presented during two public meetings next week.

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 first workshop will be held on Monday at the Sheraton Reston located at 11810 Sunrise Valley Drive in Reston. The second one will be held on Tuesday at the Loudoun Heritage Farm Museum located at 21668 Heritage Farm Lane in Sterling.

The open house-style meetings will discuss the future Metro rail stations planned, including an alternative 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.

Both workshops will run from 6 to 8 p.m. and are being hosted by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which is managing the project.

Comments on the project can be submitted at, e-mailed to or mailed to: Dulles Corridor Metrorail - Phase 2, c/o Cordell & Crumley, PO Box 2562, Reston, VA 20195. The comment period ends October 1.

1) What will happen to the Fairfax Connector? 2) How will the fare be, since Metro charges by distance?

Metro can't handle any more responsibility. Cut your losses and STOP BUILDING NOW.
