Future Of The Silver Line

Future Of The Silver Line

Extending rail service to Loudoun County is about more than transportation. We explore the political and societal aspects of the Silver Line.

Work to extend Metro to Tyson's Corner has been under way for years. But funding questions and local opposition have cast doubt on longer term plans to extend the Silver Line to Dulles Airport and beyond. The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors is expected to vote Tuesday on whether to remain a partner in the project or opt out. We explore what's at stake for the county and the entire region.
