Subj: MWAA Statement re: Substantial Completion of Dulles Corridor Rail Project

We have been informed by Dulles Transit Partners (DTP), the contractor building Phase 1 of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project Silver Line, of their intention to declare substantial completion on Wednesday, April 9. The declaration of substantial completion by DTP means they believe they have satisfied the requirements to turn the project over to Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (Airports Authority), who will then turn the Project over to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Agency (WMATA) for final testing and preparation for operations.
Once we receive the declaration, the Airports Authority will begin our 15-day review of the submittal to ensure that all necessary deliverables have been properly completed and included.
We have been working closely with DTP as they have addressed remaining outstanding items, and we will continue to work closely with them during this review and while they work on a variety of additional required tasks.
Substantial completion is an important step in the process of turning the project over to WMATA. Another step will be “operational readiness,” which WMATA will declare before starting their own testing and other processes. No date has been set for turning the project over to WMATA, and WMATA has not set an opening date for service.
