Welcome, Silver Line.
It won't even open for service until next year, but Metro wants commuters to know that the Silver Line is coming.
The transit agency is breaking out its new system map today, and it will include stations along the 23-mile, $6 billion line in Northern Virginia. The line's first phase goes from East Falls Church to Reston and is expected to open early next year, while a second phase out to Dulles Airport is expected to start service by 2018.
Metro's challenge isn't only to get one of its most expensive projects in history running, but making sure commuters are aware of it and actually use it.
