Silver Line guide: What Metro riders need to know

ABC 7 WJLA News - ABC 7 News - Mon, 21 Jul 2014 15:06:13 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) -- The first phase of Metro's Silver Line will open on Saturday, July 26 at noon.

The Silver Line is a 23-mile extension of the existing Metrorail system with new tracks that extend from East Falls Church, through Tysons Corner and Reston, and eventually by 2018 to Washington Dulles International Airport west to Ashburn.

Phase 1 of the project adds four new stations in Tysons Corner, Virginias largest employment center, and one in Reston.

Here's an overview of what riders will need to know about service changes:

Overall Impact

Adding the Silver Line will lead to changes during rush hour that impact riders on the Blue and Orange lines due to technical limitations on the number of trains Metro can send through each stretch of track.

Currently, during the morning and afternoon rush hours, there are 7 Blue Line trips per hour on an uneven headway. After the Silver Line begins service the Blue Line will be reduced to an even 12 minute headway (5 trains per hour) with more of the trains being 8-car trains. There is no change to Blue Line service during midday or weekend hours. Blue Line resources to download:

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Officials in Arlington will require the organizers of pub crawls to get a permit and pay for any county services the event uses.

The county manager will develop the details for managing the pub crawls. The new policy will allow the county to assess fees and charge pub crawl event organizers for police, fire and emergency services.

Wrong turn: Driver ends up on the W&:OD Trail in Arlington

ABC 7 WJLA News - Kimberly Suiters - Fri, 18 Jul 2014 23:31:09 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: Runners and cyclists on the W&:OD Trail were taken by surprise when a car made its way onto the popular pathway.

Thousands of people utilize D.C.-area bike trails every day. The trails are not only wide enough for emergency and maintenance vehicles to get by, but also for errant drivers who have lost their way.

Participants in Sheila Cordaro&rsquo:s boot camp are used to I-66 traffic buzzing over their shoulders. However, they are not used to seeing a car driving on the path right next to them.

&ldquo:All of a sudden, I saw this black car driving up the bike path,&rdquo: said witness Beth Yoder.

Cordaro recalled, &ldquo:We all turned and we said, &lsquo:No, stop, stop! This isn&rsquo:t a road!&rsquo:&rdquo:

&ldquo:It was almost like she thought she found [a] special magic path or something,&rdquo: said witness Ginny Kelly.

Posted warning signs and rubber barriers make it hard to imagine where the driver mistook the W&:OD Trail for the street.

&ldquo:I was afraid that a biker or runner was coming the other way and going so fast they couldn&rsquo:t stop&mdash:the car was taking up the entire path,&rdquo: Yoder said.

This is not the first time a car has found its way onto the trail: a YouTube video captured a car on the trail in Vienna last year. Various new accounts indicate it happens at least half a dozen times a year.

In the end, witnesses guided the driver, who appeared to be in her mid-50s and had out-of-state tags, off the trail down a narrow path and past a crowded playground.

&ldquo:It was amazing that she had no idea she wasn&rsquo:t allowed in this space,&rdquo: Yoder said.

The Northern Virginia Regional Park Foundation does not track how often cars end up on trails. Police will ticket drivers, but witnesses need to report the incidents, so authorities can determine where the holes are.

7 On Your Side: Exploding sunroofs are more common than you might think

ABC 7 WJLA News - Joce Sterman - Fri, 18 Jul 2014 20:10:09 EST

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WJLA) &ndash: There is a danger looming over some drivers: exploding sunroofs are a more common problem than many people realize.

Kate Vasiloff is a D.C.-area transplant, missing the perks of home.

&ldquo:I&rsquo:m a Florida sun baby, so I love the sun,&rdquo: the Arlington resident said. Vasiloff can still catch her daily rays in Virginia, thanks to her sunroof.

But a May shower ruined her drive: it wasn&rsquo:t rain that started falling&mdash:it was glass.

&ldquo:All of a sudden, we hear what sounded like a gunshot and had no idea what it was,&rdquo: Vasiloff said.

Vasiloff says her sunroof spontaneously exploded as she sat at a stop sign in Washington, D.C., shattering the glass.

&ldquo:We knew we didn&rsquo:t hit anything. We knew nothing had hit us,&rdquo: she said. &ldquo:It&rsquo:s such a random thing to have happen.&rdquo:

But it happens more than you think. ABC 7 News dug through National Highway Traffic Safety Administration records and found hundreds of complaints about exploding sunroofs. Owners of various makes and models reported having been unexpectedly showered with glass: some were even injured by it.

&ldquo:It&rsquo:s not supposed to happen, and I didn&rsquo:t think it could happen,&rdquo: Vasiloff said.

When a sunroof spontaneously explodes, everyone wants to know the cause. But it&rsquo:s a mystery that can be tough to crack.

Experts tell ABC 7 News there is no definitive way to tell what shattered a sunroof, unless you&rsquo:ve got a rock as your smoking gun. But they say the way the glass shatters can provide some clues.

&ldquo:If the flat glass at the edges of where it&rsquo:s broken are curved up, that indicates something internally caused the glass to break&mdash:a defect in the glass,&rdquo: said Pete Daly, the president of Paymer &: Phillips Auto Repair in Laurel, Md.

In his 20 years in the sunroof repair business, Daly has seen plenty of these defects. He says techs at his shop fix blown-out sunroofs on a regular basis, many of them from customers that claim explosions.

&ldquo:It doesn&rsquo:t matter what make or model or what sunroof manufacturer&mdash:they all have these problems,&rdquo: Daly said.

Still, exploding sunroofs are known to be more of an issue for some makes and models than others. In the last two years, both Audi and Hyundai have recalled thousands of cars because of sunroof issues that could send glass falling onto drivers. Aftermarket manufacturer Webasto recalled hundreds of thousands of sunroofs, out of concern they could spontaneously break.

Vasiloff&rsquo:s sunroof was original equipment that&rsquo:s since been fixed. Now, she&rsquo:s back to catching rays behind the wheel.

&ldquo:I use it like nothing happened,&rdquo: Vasiloff said. &ldquo:I&rsquo:m not a live-in-fear kind of person. It might happen again, but I figure lightning can&rsquo:t strike twice.&rdquo:

NHTSA has been looking into reports of exploding sunroofs. In May, the administration upgraded an investigation into the problem tied to Kia Sorentos, but so far there have been no recalls on that car.

To check if your car has a history of exploding sunroofs, or other common issues, visit NHTSA&rsquo:s Office of Defects Investigation.

$12.3M gift to help restore Robert E. Lee's home in Arlington

ABC 7 WJLA News - The Associated Press - Thu, 17 Jul 2014 18:30:31 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - A historic plantation originally built as a monument to George Washington overlooking the nation's capital, a site that later was home to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee and 63 slaves, will be restored to its historical appearance after a $12.3 million gift announced Thursday.

David Rubenstein, a billionaire history buff and co-founder of The Carlyle Group, said he is giving the National Park Foundation the funds needed for a full restoration of the historic house, grounds and slave quarters to show visitors how they appeared in 1860, as well as an overhaul of the site's museum exhibits. Rubenstein said the site crowns the most sacred land in the country, Arlington National Cemetery, but needed major repairs.

Rubenstein also has given multimillion dollar gifts in recent years to restore the Washington Monument, the first president's Mount Vernon estate and Thomas Jefferson's home at Monticello, including a recreation of its historic slave quarters.

"The goal is to remind people of American history," Rubenstein said. "I think when you're restoring history, you should remind people of the good and the bad."

Arlington House, as it is known, was built between 1802 and 1818 by Washington's step grandson, George Washington Parke Custis and his slaves on a hilltop overlooking the new capital city and the Potomac River. Lee later married into the family, and it became his family's plantation estate.

After Lee resigned from the Union army and joined the Confederacy, Union troops captured the estate during the Civil War and made it their military headquarters to defend Washington from Virginia. Graffiti from Civil War soldiers is still visible in the mansion's attic.

After the war, the area became a community for emancipated slaves, and Union troops began burying their war dead on the grounds, in part to prevent Lee from returning. It eventually became Arlington National Cemetery, the burial site for many soldiers as well as President John F. Kennedy.

The 200-year-old house and grounds symbolize the nation's reconciliation after the Civil War, said National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis, but it is in poor condition.

The roof leaks inside, and the climate control system is so unstable some artwork can't be displayed. Decorative paint on the building's facade is peeling away. Exhibits in a nearby museum building haven't been updated in 30 years. The needs are part of an $11 billion backlog on maintenance across the national parks.

"We frankly do not get enough appropriations on an annual basis to take care of these places," so private support is critical, Jarvis said.

Still, the home is the most visited historic house in the national park system. It receives about 650,000 visitors each year, and between 1 and 2 million people visit the grounds, park officials said.

"As you can imagine, that's fantastic but it also leads to a certain level of wear and tear," said Project Mangaer Brandon Bies.

Some restoration planning has already begun, and designs will be drafted later this year. Much of the work will be completed in late 2015 through 2016.

Plans call for scaffolding to be built around the brick-and-stucco house for artisan painters to restore the decorative paint design that looks like marble. Interior systems will be replaced. Slave quarters will be completely restored, along with the gardens and grounds.

Art and decorative features brought more than 150 years ago from Washington's Mount Vernon estate and from Lee's West Point office will be conserved. Even Lee's plumbing system that provided early flush toilets inside when such contraptions were extremely rare in the 19th century will be restored.

The work may require the house to close for a short time during periods of low visitation in the late fall and winter, but other parts of the site will remain open.

"It's an extraordinary site," Rubenstein said, "and I think all Americans will benefit from having it restored."

Navy Yard agency looks ahead after September shootings

ABC 7 WJLA News - The Associated Press - Thu, 17 Jul 2014 06:46:44 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - The commander of the Navy shipbuilding agency stunned by last year's fatal shooting of 12 workers at its Washington headquarters is charting a course for the future.

Vice Admiral William Hilarides will speak Thursday to a breakfast meeting of defense contractors and Navy supporters about the strategic business plan of Naval Sea Systems Command.

The agency manages 150 acquisition programs and has an annual budget of nearly $30 billion.

In other public appearances this year, Hilarides has touted the resilience of the command and the thousands of people who worked at Washington Navy Yard Building 197.

The building is undergoing renovation before reopening next year, renamed for Joshua Humphreys, designer of the first Navy frigates.

The gunman in the Sept. 16 shootings, Aaron Alexis, was killed by police.
