The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which is supervising the rail project, is seeking approval for the location of a control room to manage the switches and signals that would transfer trains from the Orange Line to the extension, commonly known as the Silver Line. The County Board of Supervisors is set to hear the appeal Tuesday. Fairfax has already approved putting the control room at the site of an existing Metro power substation near Fisher Avenue and Great Falls Street in Falls Church."
