ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - The head of the beleaguered $3 billion project to extend Metro’s Silver Line through Tysons Corner is resigning.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority announced Wednesday that project director Pat Nowakowski is leaving next month to take a job at another transit agency.

The contractor recently declared it has substantially completed work on the project, but MWAA is still conducting its own review to see whether it concurs. MWAA has already once rejected the contractor’s claim that work was finished.

Even though the project was supposed to have been completed months ago, MWAA officials praised Nowakowski’s stewardship of the project.

Also Wednesday, the authority said it expects it can keep the current $3.50 fee on the Dulles Toll Road in place through 2018, contingent on receipt of a low-interest federal loan.
