Regional planners from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) got a good look at the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project (DCMP) last Thursday. Coming from field offices from across the country, these representatives were excited to learn about one of the largest infrastructure projects in the United States.
The FTA is an agency within the Department of Transportation that provides technical and financial assistance to local public transit systems. For phase two of the DCMP, the FTA is providing a loan at a fixed rate lower than those offered by private lenders.
The tour was run by Stephen Barna (MWAA/DCMP), Jennifer Alcott (Capital Rail Constructors), Syrina White (DCMP), Amanda Scarangella (DCMP), and Robert O’Shaughnessy (MWAA/DCMP). William Morrison III (shuttle operations manager, Dulles Int’l Airport) helped facilitate bus transportation for the tour
