Dulles Metrorail Extension (Silver Line), Phases I and II
Fairfax and Loudoun Counties, Virginia
This $5.25 billion project includes new construction of a 23-mile Metro Rail extension from the West Falls Church Station to Ashburn, Virginia, just west of Washington Dulles International Airport. The full project includes 11 new metro stations in the Tyson’s Corner area and along the Dulles Toll Road/Greenway Corridor. Work includes extensive utility relocation, new foundations, piers, elevated track, a 2,100-foot long tunnel in Tyson’s Corner, road improvements, new metro stations and associated infrastructure construction. The project is being constructed in two phases. Phase I was constructed from West Falls Church to Wiehle Avenue on the eastern edge of Reston at a cost of $2.75 billion. It includes five stations and was completed in 2014. Phase II will start at Wiehle Avenue and will extend the Metro to Ashburn in eastern Loudoun County. The estimated budget for Phase II is $2.5 billion and will include the remaining stations.
