Dulles Rail public meetingThis is a good opportunity to find out more about the Dulles Rail project. Changes are being proposed for several of the rail stations as part of the Phase 2 of the project, from the Reston Parkway station to Dulles Airport, ending at Route 772 in Loudoun County. A major change at the Dulles Airport station would move the station exit much further away from the airport terminal. This is also a chance to ask about bicycle accommodations at these stations.
From the Dulles Corridor Metrorail project:
Public Information Workshops will be held on Sept. 13, 14 on Proposed Design Updates to Phase 2 of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority will hold two public information workshops to update the public on the latest design plans for the 11.6 mile section of Phase 2 of the Dulles Metrorail project which will be built from Wiehle Avenue on the eastern edge of Reston in Fairfax County to Route 772 in Ashburn in eastern Loudoun County.
Information will be provided on the six future Metrorail stations in Phase 2, including an alternative option for the Washington Dulles International Airport station. The other five Phase 2 stations will be located near: Reston Parkway; Herndon-Monroe; Route 28; Route 606 and Route 772.
