The Big Dig - Tysons Style...
Tonight I was going to a League Meeting in Tysons and took a snapshot of the ongoing construction the median of Leesburg Pike. There will be an elevated track above this median. There was a big push to tunnel the entire line but the budget killed this. Instead of losing the project completely, there was finally consensus to tunnel a portion but surface/elevate a majority.
I saw this cool article on USA Today that shows some other great pictures of the massive construction, all while traffic continues. I should mention the Gannett Headquarters, which publishes USA Today, are in Tysons
