Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton (D-VA) issued the following statement on the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority’s announcement of Substantial Completion of the Metro Silver Line Phase 2 expansion:
“This is an important step for Virginians who have long awaited Metro’s expansion. The Silver Line Phase 2 project will help Fairfax and Loudoun residents get around the region more quickly and efficiently, especially those who face long travels for work each day. Reducing those commute times means more time with family.
“The Silver Line is key to our community’s continued economic growth, business success, and local jobs. This project will also make Dulles International Airport, which I’m proud to represent in Congress, more accessible to travelers across the DC region.
“I will continue working to ensure this Silver Line expansion is safe, reliable, and built to last as it completes its final stages.”
