Now that thing have calmed down after the opening of phase I we are going to settled back into the routine of describing how things are proceeding on phase II.

Construction on phase II is presently confined to Dulles Airport property north of Aviation Drive. Roughly 40 column are in various stages of construction. At this writing 12 have column cap on them, 16 are at or nearly ready for column cap the remainder are rebar cages sticking out of the ground. The 4 column that will carry the elevated over Autopilot Drive north of Rudder Road have not been holed to bedrock yet along with the 6 north of Aviation Drive along Air Freight Lane. Do to the weather I was unable to see exactly how many columns have been driven to bedrock between Windshear Road and the Dulles Greenway.

The casting plant site on the airport property used to make the post-tension segments for phase I is presently being used as a material lay down area. Not sure if it will be used by the phase II contractor for the same purpose, will check the area on my next visit.

Test track and Commissioning Facility

The new buildings in Greenbelt Yard are complete. Not sure how far along the fitting out of the equipment in commissioning facility is.

Grading to prepare for the roadbed on the test track is still proceeding south of Greenbelt Road. The surface cable trough for the test track signaling and train control system has been installed adjacent to inbound track E2 from the interlocking south of the Greenbelt station to just north of Greenbelt Road.

Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project, 07 26 2014 Phase I Silver Line Opening Day and Phase II progress.

5 stations and 11.7 route miles of Phase I of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project (Silver line) opened on 07 26 2014. These 5 station and 11.7 miles bring the Metrorail system from the previous total of 106.3 miles and 86 stations to 117 miles and 91 stations.

The opening day ceremonies were conducted under a tent shortly after 10:30 AM adjacent to the Wiehle- Reston East south entrance pavilion. A ribbon cutting ceremony was conducted in front of the Wiehle- Reston East south entrance pavilion shortly before noon. An 8 car train of 7k cars made an appearance at the Wiehle- Reston East station for inspection by officials before the opening day ceremonies, the movement of the 8 car train of 7k cars was made between regularly scheduled movements of passengers carrying trains. It was returned to the yard before noon.

The 5 new stations opened their entrances a 11:30 AM, The faregates at Wiehle- Reston East were turned on before noon to allow passengers to board the first inbound train that was scheduled to depart at noon. The faregates at the 4 Tysons Corner stations were turn on a noon to allow passengers to inspect the station before the first inbound passengers carrying train from Wiehle- Reston East arrived. No passengers were allowed to board trains until the first inbound train from Wiehle- Reston East arrived. No passengers were allowed to board outbound trains until the first outbound train departed the East Falls Church station. The first outbound train departed East Falls Church after the first inbound train arrived. Trains operating westbound displaying an Orange line East Falls Church destination sign simultaneously changed to Silver line trains with a Wiehle- Reston East destination sign on the fly after the first inbound Silver line train arrived at East Falls Church.

My general impression of the new stations is, meh. That's primarily because I am a Harry Wesse, Massimo Virnelli purest. Wesse gave us the classic 22 coffered arch vault subway station with floating mezzanines and the classic gullwing platform canopy over the platforms of many surface and elevated stations along with many other unique design features exclusive to Metrorail. Massimo Virnelli gave us the iconic back lit M entrance pylon and the way finding mezzanine and platform pylons with vertical station name on them that read like the title on the spline of a book.

There are many Wesse design elements that can be found in the stations, 18” granite platform edge with flashing lights that warn of approaching trains, vertical inverted V textured poured in place concrete walls, railings along the sides of the passageway and on top of the mezzanine parapets to aid the sight impaired. The only Virnelli design element that is retained is the iconic the back lit M entrance pylon, The Virnelli mezzanine and platform way finding pylons are no where to be found.

The stations interiors are not as large as one would assume them to be based on their exterior appearance. They are however considerably larger then their older brothers, The larger interiors provide more then enough room to accommodate the smooth flow of passengers through the stations.

One of the design features of the second generation Metrorail stations that opened shortly after the turn of the century that was not used in these stations is glass parapets. However the abundant use of coated sheet metal and painted steel is every where to see. Another element that was not retained from the previous generation of stations is the use of Metro brown on doors, door frames, glazing frames, station manager kiosks, faregates and other non stainless steel or bronze surfaces, the only exception being the fare vendor cabinets. Those surface along with the structural steel are coated with a light gray, the faregates are stainless steel. The floor surfaces have also been updated, the use of hexagonal quarry tile has been abandoned throughout in favor of precast concrete paveres and poured in place brushed concrete. The platforms are finished with concrete pavers that mimic the legacy hexagonal quarry tile. On the mezzanines and in entrances natural concrete color concrete pavers are used. The floor surfaces of the entrance pavilions and pedestrian bridges are finished with poured in place brushed concrete with red granite trim.

All that being said I believe it was the correct decision to build the line and station elevated though Tysons Corner. The prospective one gets from the trains and stations of the surroundings would be imposable to see if the line and stations were underground. It even gives a prospective that can't be seen through the windshield of an automobile. The view from the trains and stations will be just as impressive after the landscape of Tysons Corner is changed to reflect the land use policies Fairfax County has envisioned for the area.

All of the stations are served by Metrobus and or Fairfax Connector and have facilitates for securing bicycles. At the Wiehle-Reston East station is a secure bike and ride facility adjacent to the north bus terminal.

The entrance pavilions are laid out in 2 different ways, the layout primarily employed, layout 1, places the elevators behind the escalators at street level with the elevators facing the escalators at the top landing, the pedestrian bridge to the fare collection mezzanine is to the right or left. Layout 1 has the pavilion placed parallel to the street or highway. The other layout employed, layout 2, again places the elevators behind the escalators to one side resulting in the elevators being to the left or right of the escalators at the top landing, in this layout the pedestrian bridge to the fare collection mezzanine is opposite of the escalators at the top landing. Layout 2 has the pavilion placed at a right angle with the entrance facing away from the street or highway. All of the entrance pavilions have provision to allow connections to the second level of a future neighboring building.
