Gov. still says no to Tyson’s tunnel

Today’s Post reports that Gov. Tim Kaine (D) does not plan on changing his mind on Metro through Tysons, despite increased advocacy for a tunnel. Last fall, the governor announced that he supported an elevated line through Tyson’s Corner since it was the surest way to get the line built in a timely fashion.

Last week hopes for a tunnel seemingly got a boost when it was reported that final plans are not due until May 2008, buying time for an underground solution to be developed.

    my friend said: “just do it!” (under- or on-the- or whatever!).

    why is it so hard to mobilize and do all the planning for the underground fast, if all say underground is better, and disassuming someone got paid in advance for the on-the-gound. do we always need an emergency to move fast?
