Rail Yard at Dulles Airport

Dulles Airport will become home to the largest rail yard and maintenance facility in the WMATA system, with the ability to hold over 160 train cars.  The yard will be located along Route 606, which is currently wooded airport property.

The contract for construction of the rail yard and maintenance facility was awarded to Hensel Phelps, of Chantilly, Virginia during the summer of 2014. Construction will not begin until 2016.
