Hope for a Tysons tunnel

It turns out that there is more time to submit plans for Metro through Tysons Corner than previously thought. According to today’s Post final plans are not due to the Federal Transit Administration until May 2008, giving 15 months for boosters of a tunnel through Tysons to make their case.

The more and more I think about it, the more it makes sense to build the line underground through Tysons. It may only cost pennies (or more likely, nickles or dimes) on the dollar more and in the long run the reduced mantienance may make up the difference. Plus, it improves the chances of Tysons turning into more than just a series of corporate campuses and malls.

    and a few days ago i was like saying with confidence that there is a final plan and it’s gonna be an underground one. i have to take it back now. everyone said that ‘there were so many final plans’, anyways!

    they also say in the long-run either the hourse or the king is dead. the whole new tysons-like area might get built somewhere else by the time speedy transport makes it there, and take off the traffic heat. yeah. i wish.
