The latest update from Dulles Rail for Tysons Corner area in its entirety.
Utility Relocations and Right-of-Way Acquisitions Proceeding in Tysons Corner
Construction crews, cranes, and bright orange cones along Route 7 signal progress on the relocations of utilities along the Route 7 and Route 123 corridors in Tysons Corner. This is in preparation for the future construction of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project.
This work increased after the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) approved the request by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority to move the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project into the Final Design phase of the FTA's New Starts process on May 12.
Project officials work daily with businesses near the construction zones to minimize disruptions. Traffic patterns are changing, but access to all businesses remain open.
The project team is also working to update its financial plans and is following the FTA process for obtaining a $900 million Full Funding Grant Agreement.
When FTA approved the project into Final Design, they committed approximately $159 million for continuing project design, utility relocations, engineering, and project administration.
