Silver Line Open House Set for Pr. George's
New Metrorail line will connect Largo with Reston when opened later this year.
The Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority will be hosting three open houses across the DC region, including one in Prince George's County, next week to share information about Metrorail's soon-to-open Silver Line.
When it opens later this year, the new Metro line will initially provide commuters with a transfer-free link between Largo Town Center Metro station and the new Wiehle Reston East Metro station in Reston Va. Phase 1 of the Silver Line using 11 miles of new track to reach up Virginia's Route 267 corridor, passing through Tysons Corner before reaching Reston. Eventually, the line will go all the way to Dulles Airport.
Once completed, Riverdale Park and University Park area residents will be able to make it to Dulles Airport, a trip which can take hours by car if ensnared in Beltway traffic, with only a single transfer from the Green or Yellow Line to the Silver Line at L'Enfant Plaza.
The first open house will be on Tuesday, March 12 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Faith Temple Baptist Church at 211 Maryland Park Drive in Capitol Heights, MD.
Two other open houses are scheduled for Thursday March 14 in Reston and Saturday, March 16 in Arlington.
