It would appear the long discussed extension of Metro to Dulles is a certainty, as "U.S. transportation officials will seal their commitment to a long-planned extension of Metro to Dulles International Airport at a ceremony today," according to The Washington Post's article.
Proponents of the extension say it "will be worth it: a public transit system serving the region's primary international airport and Virginia's most prosperous jobs corridor."
Wow. Dulles opened in 1962, and Tysons has long been a shopping and business hub. Nice long-term view of things America! But hey, while this will certainly cause commuting headaches for people near the construction, we're very glad this is happening.
