Loudoun Holds Final Work Group On Silver Line

Play associated audio

Taxpayers in Loudoun County may finally learn tonight how the board of supervisors plans to pay for Phase 2 of the Silver Line rail project.

The Loudoun board is holding its final work session before Tuesday's big vote on whether to opt out of the $2.7 billion rail link. The supervisors are leaning toward creating special tax districts around the future Metro stops west of Dulles Airport — to raise revenue to cover the county's $270 million dollar commitment.

Tonight's meeting may also provide a hint as to which way the board will ultimately vote. Only four supervisors have come out in support of the project so far; they need one more in order to prevent the county from opting out of the Silver Line on Tuesday.
