The names of the Metor stations along the Silver Line are still up in the air.

Metro is launching an online survey for suggestions on what to name stations along the new Silver Line, now under construction.

The project will extend Metrorail service to Dulles Airport and Loudoun County, and includes stations in McLean, Tyson's Corner, Greensboro Park, along Leesburg Pike, on Wiehle Avenue, Reston, and Herndon.

Commuters are encouraged to vote for their favorite names or write in their own suggestions.
