Dulles Rail "Back on Track"

Did you see the recent article in the Washington Examiner? It reports that "The first phase of the Dulles Rail project, which was six months behind schedule last August, is now just 11 days late and on target to be completed next year."

The Silver Line's massive concrete structures are rapidly advancing along Route 7 in Tysons Corner and beyond. The first phase of the line, which will extend from East Falls Church to Reston, is now expected to be completed by Aug. 15, 2013, and open for business in early 2014.

The Washington Examiner reported in October that contractors were 188 days behind schedule despite officials' public claims that the project was "on time and on budget."
