One Step Closer to Being a Done Deal

Today's Washington Post reports that the region's airports authority agreed yesterday to take over the Dulles Toll Road, boosting efforts to build a rail line to Dulles International Airport and raising the likelihood of higher tolls on the highway.

The Post reports that "exactly one year after they first proposed taking over the road from Virginia, Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority officials agreed unanimously to a 50-year deal to operate the roadway and manage the ambitious rail project, which would extend the Orange Line 23 miles from West Falls Church to Tysons Corner, the airport and Loudoun County. A final agreement with state officials is scheduled to be signed Dec. 29."
