The Metro to Dulles project, better known as the silver line is ahead of schedule. As more concrete is poured, naming the stations becomes more important.

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has given its suggested names for all eight stations leading up to the airport, but Metro wants to give the public some input.

In a survey, Metro will put forward the following possibilities:

Station One (located along Route 123, closest station to McLean, Va.):

  • Tysons-McLean*
  • McLean
  • Scotts Run
  • McLean-Scotts Run

  • Tysons

Station Three (located near the intersection of Route 7 & Route 123):

  • Greensboro Park
  • Westpark Drive

Station Four (located along Route 7 between Spring Hill Road and Tyco Road):

  • Tysons-Spring Hill Road*
