According to a new report from the regional airports authority, the cost of the rail extension could be reduced by choosing an alternative route that does not require construction of a tunnel.

"Phase 1 of the project, from the East Falls Church Metro station through Tysons Corner to Wiehle Avenue in Reston, which is under construction, has a price tag of $2.76 billion, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority said.

Phase 2 includes six stations, one at Dulles airport, and stations near Reston Parkway, the Herndon-Monroe area, Route 28, Route 606 and Route 772."
