Preparation work has begun on the abutments for the bridge over Centreville Road.

Grading work has begun in the area of the Innovation station and extends to the east elevated abutment north of Aviation Drive.

The Steel for bridge over Horsepen Run was installed on 04 10 2015.

The first segments of the right of way barriers, westbound side, has been installed east of the Rudder Road overpass over the Dulles Access Road.

Work continues on the installation of the 34.5 KV power feed bus that runs the full length of the route. Most is happening between the Herndon and Innovation stations. I will also noticed they are also installing the feed from the Virginia Power Dulles Airport substation along VA-28 Sulley Road between the Toll Road and Frying Pan Road.

Staging has begun for the construction of the columns west of the Dulles Airport station.

The first precast girders for the elevated were set on the columns along Air Fright Lane on 04 21 2015. Two spans have been set.

The Column in the median of Autopilot Drive north of Rudder Road has been installed. The column cap has been partly completed.

All of the columns north to the east Dulles Yard lead junction are done. Two straddle bents columns that will support the mainline elevated over the eastbound Dulles Greenway off the shoulder have been installed.

The columns for both the east and west Dulles Yard leads are in various stages of completion.

Preparation for the relocation of the eastbound Dulles Greenway to accommodate the west Dulles Yard lead junction in the median is underway. The shoulder pavement has been milled off and grading is being done.

Nothing is being done along the Dulles Greenway west of VA-606 Old Ox Road. The preparation for the bridge over Broad Run remain unchanged.

Test track and Commissioning Facility

Track has been laid along the entire length of the right of way with the exception of the area in the vicinity of the contractor access south of Greenbelt Road.

Third rail segments have been delivered and are staged at various locations along the right of way.

I am assuming the crossover that access the test track along with the signal bases have been installed as those parts are no longer in the staging area in the south Kiss and Ride lot at the Greenbelt station.
