The director of Washington, D.C.’s Silver Line Metrorail extension is resigning, The Washington Post reports.
The announcement comes as the first phase of the Metro extension is nearing completion. The line will run 11.5 miles in northern Virginia through Tysons Corner to Reston. Another 11.5 miles is scheduled to be built later to connect the D.C. Metro system to Washington’s Dulles International Airport.
The Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority, which is building the Silver Line and operates Dulles, announced this week that its rail director, Pat Nowakowski, is resigning to take another transportation-related job, according to the report.
