Congressman Connolly Tours Dulles Rail Construction Project

Congressman Connolly recently toured the construction site of a Tysons Corner Metro station that is part of the new Dulles Rail project. The Congressman was joined by U.S. Senator Mark Warner and former governor Tim Kaine. Phase I of the project—which will partially extend the Rail line towards Dulles—is currently projected to be on time and on budget with an anticipated completion date of summer 2013. Phase II of the project was approved this summer.

Gerry Connolly has been a staunch advocate for needed public transportation projects and one of the driving forces behind Dulles Rail for nearly two decades. This update marks progress in bringing state-of-the art transportation to Northern Virginia and economic development to the region. It also highlights what can be accomplished when Democratic and Republican leaders work together: the project got off the ground with support from a coalition of bipartisan leaders in Virginia—including Congressman Connolly.

Below are some pictures of the construction tour with Tim Kaine, Senator Mark Warner and Congressman Connolly:
