It’s coming.

The long-anticipated Silver Line rail extension is set to begin passenger service in early 2014.

This month, officials at the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which is overseeing construction of the $5.6 billion rail line, is expected to turn over the first five stations, including four in Tysons Corner, to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, which will operate and manage the rail line. WMATA officials are expected to conduct a series of safety tests before the rail line is open to passengers.

We’ll be doing a series of stories about the new rail line and would love to hear from potential Silver Line riders.
