Statement on the Dulles Rail Project

U.S. Transportation Secretary Mary E. Peters today made the following statement regarding the Bush Administration's decision to approve the Full Funding Grant Agreement for phase one of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project and send the project to Congress for its 60 day review.

"I commend the long-term commitment of the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, Dulles Transit Partners and the Virginia Congressional delegation to address the valid concerns we had previously raised about the viability of this project. Through a collaborative effort between local, state, and federal governments and the private sector, I think the project is now stronger, more financially sound and a better deal for commuters and taxpayers. I urge the project partners to continue their diligent efforts to contain costs and address any other issues that may arise, and wish them well in realizing the long-term aspiration of bringing rail to the Dulles corridor."
