Public hearing slated for Dulles Airport corridor project


On Wednesday, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) and Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority will host a joint public hearing on the preliminary engineering design refinements environmental assessment (EA) for the second phase of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail project.

Phase 2 of the project is planned from Wiehle Avenue on the eastern edge of Reston westward to Dulles Airport and to Route 772 in Ashburn.

The hearing’s purpose will be to solicit comments from individuals and agencies on proposed design refinements to the project, as well as the resulting changes in potential environmental and cultural resource effects, WMATA officials said in a prepared statement.

The refinements would include the relocation of the Dulles Airport Metrorail station.
