Testing continues along the branch. Finishing work on the stations is well underway. Restoration of the road surfaces of Leesburg Pike, Dolly Madison Boulevard and Chain Bridge Road is nearly done. Wide concrete sidewalks with tree planter boxes are being put in along the Leesburg Pike from Chain Bridge Road to Tyco road.

The station entrance pavilion are mostly cosmetically complete. Most of what remains to be done around entrances is finishing the aprons outside the entrances and connecting them to the sidewalks along Leesburg Pike and Chain Bridge Road. The south entrance pavilion at the McLean station is for all practical purposes is done.

The granite stair treads in most of the entrance pavilion have been installed or were in the process of being installed. Lighting outside some of the entrance pavilion has been installed.

The McLean station is essentially done, I even noted the emergency exit signs at the ends of the platform.

The work in surface entrance under the platform at the Tysons Corner station is a long way from done, it is mostly being used as a staging area for materials and equipment for work being done in the rest of the station. Retaining walls are being installed in the area surrounding the south entrance pavilion at the station. The surface finishing of these retaining wall is the only Architectural feature at the new stations that has been carried over from existing stations in the system.

The mud job in preparation for the floor finishing pavers was being done on the south entrance pedestrian bridge at the Greensboro station. Grading was being done outside of the escalator entrance at the north entrance pavilion in preparation for the apron.

At the Spring Hill station the granite stair treads were being installed in the north entrance pavilion. The area outside the north entrance pavilion is being used as a staging area for materials and equipment for work being done in the rest of the station, to a lesser extent the same is happening at the south entrance pavilion.

Wiehle-Reston East is mostly done. Finishing work was being done in the area of the south entrance pavilion, Reston Station Metro Comstock Partners property south of the station has begun work to ready their project accessible to the north pedestrian bridge.

I took some before pictures along phase II of the project. The selection of pictures posted will likely change after construction begins as things may not be in the field of view of the posted shot (took more then 4 times as many picture then what is posted). The pictures from west of the Wiehle-Reston East station to Dulles airport were taken from the shoulder of the westbound Dulles Access Road and from most of the overpass over the Dulles Access Road. The pictures on the Dulles Airport property were taken from the shoulder of the westbound Dulles Access Road, Saarinnen Circle, Copilot Way, top deck of parking garage 1, Cargo Drive and Aviation Drive. The pictures north of Dulles Airport were taken from the overpasses of the Dulles Greenway.
