Hundreds of years from now, people will remember that magical spot outside of Tysons Corner where the last "trusses," whatever they are, of Phase 1 of the Metro Silver Line were connected today, linking an unending band of concrete, and maybe eventually some rails, all the way from West Falls Church to Reston. Here's the HISTORIC MOMENT, as captured by a Twitter person from WTOP:
It'll take a lot of Toll Road quarters to pay for that golden spike.
Union thugs! Oh, wait.
Meanwhile, what else has been going on? The Reston Citizens Association has asked Gov. McDonnell to use the state's $150 million share of the project to pay down the capital costs in an attempt to slow the inevitable toll rate hikes, and now that Loudoun has decided to be part of Phase 2, it's back to the same old, same old in our progressive neighbor to the west, the end.
