LaHood is scheduled to meet with Virginia officials again about the project soon, according to a recent report from The Washington Post.
LaHood has called it one of the most important public transit projects in the country.
"This project comes at a pivotal point as the Obama Administration begins to make vast improvements to our nation's top transit systems," LaHood said in a statement when the initial grant for the project was announced.
"It will create construction jobs, encourage economic development opportunities, and help Tysons Corner become a more livable community," LaHood continued.
