Metro took control of the newly built Silver Line on Tuesday, beginning a 90-day countdown of testing before the line opens to passengers.

A firm opening date for the five stations that are part of the first phase of the Silver Line has not been set, but Metro officials believe they will be able to complete the necessary work in the next three months.

The first phase of the Silver Line will extend Metro rail service in Northern Virginia, from McLean to the Wiehle-Reston East station. The second phase of the line is under construction and will extend service to Washington Dulles International Airport.

The $2.9 billion project was supposed to have opened to the public last year.
