10 Reasons Why Loudoun County Will Get Metrorail

From the Ashburn Patch...

Controversy over the location of a proposed Metrorail station at Dulles Airport has raised the possibility that the extension of the Silver Line to Dulles Airport and into Loudoun County might be scrapped altogether.

Over the past few weeks, the discussion among local, regional and federal officials has broadened in focus, from the location of the rail station to the need to reduce the overall cost of the project.

Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Chairman Scott K. York, among others, has raised the possibility that Loudoun County might withdraw its support from the project if costs to Loudoun taxpayers and toll road users are not reduced. This would certainly kill the extension of Metrorail into Loudoun County, and perhaps the extension of the Silver Line to Dulles.

I doubt that it will come to that. Here are 10 reasons why I believe Loudoun will eventually get the Silver Line.
