Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project Phase 2 crews this summer are installing the Silver Line Phase 2 pedestrian bridges. The pedestrian bridges will provide access for Metrorail passengers to five of the six Phase 2 stations, and will extend over the Dulles Toll Road, Dulles Access Highway, Dulles Greenway, and local roads. The bridges are constructed primarily of steel, and will be set on concrete columns that have been built on the north and south sides of the stations. Bridge installation will begin on the south side of Innovation Center Station, and will require lane closures and detours on the highways and nearby roads. Additional information will be forthcoming as the work progresses through July and in the upcoming months.
