Loudoun County may back out of Dulles Rail Project,, January 25, 2012

Hank Silverberg,

FAIRFAX, Va. - The first phase of the new Silver Line is well underway, but now there's concern Phase 2 of the 23-mile Metro expansion to the airport may run into money troubles again.
Loudoun County Supervisors, with seven new members in a budget-cutting mood, have talked about possibly dropping out of the project and canceling the last two stations of the $2.8 billion project.
It's a prospect that has Fairfax County supervisors, including Pat Herrity, asking a lot of questions. . . .
