WASHINGTON METRO: OUR NATIONAL MODEL

The first segment of Washington, D.C.'s rapid transit railway is now open. It has helped open federal eyes to the underlying cause of cost overruns--contract terms. The 96-mi (155-km) overall system features a host of engineering innovations, and these are the main focal points. Featured are aerial structures, tunneling, stations, system operation, and materials.
