Washington Group, Bechtel approved for D.C. rail extension

Posted on September 13, 2004

Dulles Transit Partners LLC, a partnership between Washington Group International and Bechtel Infrastructure Corp., received a notice to proceed with development work and preliminary engineering for the first phase of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project in northern Virginia.

Virginia's Department of Rail and Public Transportation gave the OK after receiving the Federal Transit Administration’s approval of a $59 million grant to begin engineering work on phase one of the project.

The first phase would extend the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's system approximately 11 miles to Reston, Va. The complete proposed project would extend Metrorail 23 miles to Washington Dulles International Airport and beyond.

The preliminary engineering and development work for phase one will take 15 months and is expected to be completed in October 2005. A groundbreaking date for construction has not been set.
