Delegate Barbara Comstock's Statement On The Opening Of Metrorail's Silver Line 


McLean, VA- Delegate Barbara Comstock (VA-34) released the following statement today regarding the opening of Metrorail's Silver Line to Wiehle Avenue:


"I was pleased to join my federal, state and local colleagues this morning to celebrate the opening of the Silver Line.  The Silver Line will be an important part of our transportation network and will be part of our efforts to continue to bring prosperity to our region and Dulles airport.  As we move forward on Phase II of Dulles Rail, I am pleased that my competitive bidding legislation, supported by the Virginia Chamber, the Loudoun Board of Supervisors and our business community, has already contributed to saving hundreds of millions of dollars on the second phase of the project.  On the federal level, we need to find similar ways to increase competition, save taxpayer's money and stretch our taxpayer's transportation dollars further."
