Posted on in News

USA: Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project design is 99.3% complete and construction is around 17% complete, as construction work continues along the entire 11.4-mile stretch of Phase 2, which extends from existing Wiehle-Reston East Station to Dulles International Airport.

"This is the biggest year so far for construction all along the Phase 2 alignment from Reston west to Ashburn," said Charles Stark, the executive director for the project. "there is a lot of work to be done."


Considerable work has been done at Dulles Airport and at the Innovation Center Station site, which is the first station to the east of the airport and at the Dulles Airport Station site adjacent to Garage 1. The pedestrian tunnel running from Garage 1 to the main terminal has been closed to permit construction of the station. Once work has finished, the tunnel will reopen to provide access for those parking in the garage as well as those arriving or departing via Metro.

Dulles will be the only station to have different design aspects from the rest of the Metrorail. The station intends to resemble the terminal's sleek and iconic design.
