Dulles Metrorail Financing Plan Fails

The Herndon town coucil turned down a new tax district that would have eventually funded a much-need Metrorail extension to Dulles Airport, primarily because the first phase of the project wouldn't reach Herndon, and there was no guarantee the second phase would actually be built.

"We've tried and tried and tried to get the tracks out to Dulles," [former governor A. Linwood] Holton said after last night's vote. "We couldn't. Now the project is dead and it may be 25 years until we see rail to Dulles."
Looks like I'm going to have to keep driving to work. Blah.
