Capital Rail Constructors was selected for the project after submitting the at $1.17 billion bid earlier this year.

Phase 2 will extend the Silver Line 11.4 miles west into Loudoun County, Va., from the Wiehle-Reston East Station.

Five of the new stations will be built on ground level. At Dulles International Airport, the team will construct an aerial station.

MWAA is undertaking the Silver Line Project in partnership with Fairfax and Loudoun counties, as well as the Commonwealth of Virginia. Upon completion, ownership of the Silver Line will be transferred to the Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority.
