The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority today will launch the sale of as much as $853 million of bonds - including about $360 million of taxable Build America Bonds - to fund construction of a new Metrorail line that will connect riders with the Dulles International Airport.

The project, initially envisioned 12 years ago, will add 11 new stations and 23.1 miles of rail that will extend the Metro system deep into the northern Virginia suburbs.
