Drivers traveling in Northern Virginia this Memorial Day weekend may notice a small army of cranes, concrete and construction workers. They'll be hard at work building the silver line, the new extension of Metro out to Dulles Airport.

The multi-billion dollar project won't be completed for another three years. But this weekend, it enters its most difficult phase as crews begin building rail bridges in Tysons Corner and Falls Church.

WAMU visited the project's construction site to see how it's going.
