May 20, 2013

As reported by Jeff Clabaugh in the Washington Business Journal, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority has awarded the design-build portion of Phase 2 of the Silver Line to Capital Rail Constructors which is a joint venture between Clark Construction Group, LLC and Kiewit Infrastructure South Co.  The team beat out 4 other teams of contractors as a result of competitive pricing, and meeting the technical requirements of the contract.

The contract, awarded May 14, gives Clark and Kiewit the job of designing and building the 11.4-mile segment of the Silver Line with six stations from Reston through Dulles International Airport and to Ashburn.  The notice to proceed is anticipated to be in July 2013 and the project is expected to be completed in 2018.  Unlike Phase 1 of the Silver Line, Phase 2 will receive no federal funding for the project, and will be funded primarily by state and local governments.
