Dulles Rail Doubts
When federal authorities announced they would not fund the Metro extension to Dulles International Airport without significant changes to the plan, they cited several reasons, including their doubts that Metro could absorb the extension into an already troubled system. "Metro's operational issues have become really serious over the last several months," said Federal Transit Administration chief James S. Simpson. Citing Metro's funding problems and needed repairs, he said the expansion would be comparable to putting an addition on a crumbling house. "First, you have to fix the house," he said. In 2005, Post reporters published a four-part series detailing Metro's problems, including misspent funds and safety problems that could have been prevented.
