Dulles Rail Project Could Stall More Than 40 Virginia Transportation Projects

The McDonnell administration says more than 40 transportation projects in Northern Virginia could be delayed if $300 million more is added to the Dulles Rail Project, the Washington Times reports.

Transportation Secretary Sean Connaughton said the state would either have to borrow the additional money for Dulles Rail or pull it from transportation projects in development. The list details funding for a handful of projects in Northern Virginia, including two in Loudoun County — $42 million in bonds for an interchange at Route 659/Belmont Ridge Road and $7.5 million to extend the Battlefield Parkway.
