Dulles Metrorail Project Behind Schedule: Report

The Dulles Metrorail Project is as much as six months behind schedule, despite statements from officials who say it's on time, according to a new report.

The Washington Examiner obtained an audit saying the project’s contractor reported it was 188 days behind schedule.

There have already been several setbacks in the $7 billion project. In July, Dulles transit partners reported it unexpectedly found an underground gas line in the project’s path. It also had problems installing communications systems.

The delay could mean the first phase of the so-called Silver Line would open in June 2014 instead of late 2013.
