Metro-test-train-near-Wiehle-Reston

The long-awaited arrival of Metro’s Silver Line Phase One — adding four stations in Tysons Corner (McLean, Tysons Corner, Greensboro, Spring Hill) and terminating at the Wiehle-Reston East Station — finally has an official opening date of July 26th.  Sadly, not in time to ease travel into the district for July 4th festivities, but it will finish out the summer season and provide another means of getting in and out of the city for local commuters and tourists west of the beltway.

For more information, check out the Washington Post and official Silver Line Metro website.

NO Trash Service for Feb 13th or 14th Due to Snowstorm

Importance: High

Good Afternoon —

As many of us are aware there are mixed predictions regarding snowfall accumulations in our area across the next several days. As of right now our area is slated to begin receiving snow/ sleet Wednesday evening with accumulations between 4-8” throughout the night. If we receive these snowfall amounts our crews will likely NOT be servicing on Thursday, February 13th. They also call for the snow to continue throughout the day Thursday with some predictions calling for over a foot of snow at end. Depending on how long and how much snow the DC area receives our crews may also NOT be servicing Friday, February 14th.

The main issue at this time is that our service is going to depend on how much snow we receive and when and how it hits our area. I will update everyone as soon as our crews can determine if it will be safe for service on Thursday and will continue to update into Friday. Please pay close attention to my emails and be on the lookout for continued updates.

As always, our #1 priority is Safety for all and we appreciate your patience during this weather event.
