    think the underground option is far superior. The above ground is a complete barrier to pedestrian and car "traffic".  I was on the Tysons Corner Land Use Task Force.  The above ground tracks aren't like the monorail through Disneyworld with little kids walking underneath.  It is a wall.  

    Tysons will be a mess with an above ground metro.  Think Berlin Wall.  Yes, it will be that bad.

    Life cycle costs, environmental reasons, track maintenance, aesthetics, etc.  The underground is the way to go.  

    Just think what the Rosslyn/Ballston Metro corridor is like, and then think what it would be like with tracks running down Wilson blvd?  Sorry to sound preachy, I'm just passionate about it because it is a generational decision.

    I haven't focused on the light rail project, I'll have to look into it.
    Thx for the question. - Doug
