DC Metro’s Silver Line May Open in July. Will It Bridge the DC Tech Gap?

WAMU.org reports that the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) hopes to begin trial runs for operations on the Silver Line of its Metro rail service by the end of July. Simulated service is expected to start on July 20, with full passenger service to begin July 28. We wonder, though, what this means specifically for the tech community in the DC-metro area – will this be the summer of tech in the DC region? Once the Silver Line is operational, will it help to bridge the Dulles Tech Corridor to the more central DC tech scene? What effect could this have on the entire region as a tech ecosystem?
