The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority has decided to place a Metro station at Dulles Airport above ground, rather than below.
The dispute centers on where to build the station at Dulles Airport. The Authority is choosing to build it close to the terminal, underground, and that's angering local politicians, who want the station above ground at a cost of $300 million less.
"This will not only increase the cost, many people think it will add to a delay," says Northern Virginia Rep. Frank Wolf (R).
Wolf is calling on the Authority to reverse its decision, but he won't say what he'll do if they refuse.
When asked if it would be possible to take control of the project from the Authority, Wolf said, "We'll take things one step at a time."
Airports Authority directors say they're scheduling a meeting with the congressman to try to work out their differences.
