Silver Line Questions? Ask Reston Now

Workings put finish touches on Silver Line station/Credit: MetroAfter decades of envisioning, five years of building and more than six months of delays, Metro’s Silver Line finally opens on Saturday.

The 11.4-mile extension brings a new level of public transportation to this part of Fairfax County. There will be five stops from McLean to Reston’s Wiehle Avenue. Wiehle-Reston East will be the end of the line for at least five years, when Phase 2 of the Silver Line — which will extend the service from Reston to Dulles International Airport and into Loudoun County — will open.

Wiehle-Reston East will also be the only Silver Line stop with parking. The 3,300-spot garage held a ribbon cutting and open house on Saturday.

With the Silver Line opening comes a lot of questions on cost, logistics, Reston traffic and train times, among other things. Reston Now has (or will get) the answers! Ask us your question in the comments below and we will respond there or in an additional article.
