Michael Delpierre Gets Quoted In The Fairfax Times About Dulles Rail
Professionals who work in the Reston area are generally supportive of completing the planned second phase of the Dulles rail project, according to a recent survey by the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce. Only 4.1 percent of the approximately 400 self-selected participants in the online survey said they believe the rail line should terminate at Wiehle Avenue in Reston, the terminus of the first phase of the Silver Line.
Most, about 47 percent, said they believe the entire planned second phase of the project, extending Metrorail service to Ashburn, should be constructed while 32 percent support ending service at Dulles Airport.
“For us, it is huge,” said Michael Delpierre of the search optimization firm Conversion Pipeline, which has offices on Sunrise Valley Drive. His company serves clients all over the metro area, and Delpierre said rail service will make it easier to get together for face-to-face meetings.
