Board of Supervisors Holds Public Hearing on Dulles Rail Phase 2


March 20, 2012- Today, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing on Phase II of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project. This public hearing marks the completion of a public outreach program Fairfax County conducted in anticipation of a final vote confirming our continued participation in the project. This outreach has included a series of public meetings, online forums, and a hearing to receive comments from the public. Additionally, Fairfax County has solicited feedback on proposed station names along the Silver Line, drawing some 13,000 responses from our online survey. At these events and at online forums, Fairfax County has answered many questions about Phase II of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project.

In addition to holding today’s public hearing, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted this morning in favor of a motion allowing an additional 30 days of review for Loudoun County before a final vote on participation in Phase II of the project. The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors requested these extra days due to the turnover on their board as a result of the November 2011 elections. Following today’s public hearing, I moved to schedule Fairfax County’s vote on continued participation in Phase II at the April 10th board meeting.

This month was a crucial time in the progression of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project. I am hopeful that we can move forward with a positive decision. Rail to Dulles remains my top transportation priority and I will continue to work to complete this project in a way that is affordable to our residents, commuters and corporate neighbors.
