Trees Coming Down Along Sunset Hills to Make Way For Silver Line Support

Crews have been busy clearing trees and brush along Sunset Hills Road near Town Center Parkway and the Dulles Toll Road.

The work is in preparation for Phase 2 of Metro’s Silver Line, says the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project.

The area will be the site of two facilities that will support the Silver Line.

The work is the start of the future Traction Power Substation (TPSS) No. 12 adjacent to Sunset Hills Road, near the Town Center Parkway, says the DCMP.

TPSS No. 12 will provide power and communications to the Silver Line. When that area has been cleared, crews will move south across the Dulles International Airport Access Highway and Dulles Toll Road to begin clearing at the site of Stormwater Management facility.

Phase 2 of the Silver Line, which will have stations at Reston Parkway, Herndon, Route 28, Dulles International Airport and Ashburn, is slated to open in early 2019.
