Metro makes deal to help push Silver Line closer to opening

ABC 7 WJLA News - - Thu, 24 Apr 2014 13:07:19 EST

(WJLA) - Metro and the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA), the agency responsible for the Silver Line project, brokered a deal Thursday that they hope will help push the much-anticipated Silver Line closer to opening - possibly by summertime.

Metro General Manager and CEO Richard Sarles announced an agreement under which Metro will allow MWAA addiitional time to continue to work on certain construction and operation items even after turning over the project to Metro.

Without this agreement, MWAA would be required to complete all items before turning the project over to Metro, which would push out the opening date even further.

":The Airports Authority is still required to address all priority items - those that affect reliability or require significant track access - prior to handing the project off to Metro,": Sarles explained, citing the following examples:

- Resolving items identified during system performance demonstrations, such as loss of speed readouts (a signal problem that affects reliability). Installation of capacitors to resolve interlocking ":bobbing": track circuits

- Improve the reliability of traction power circuit breakers.

- Completion of all work that requires significant track access or single tracking.

":We expect that the Airports Authority will complete the remaining items in a timely fashion, thereby allowing us to open the line this summer,": Sarles said in a statement Thursday.

Later on Thursday, MWAA is expected to announce their decision regarding their contractor's submission of ":substantial completion.": Substantial completion is a milestone between MWAA and the contractor that does not involve Metro.

Following substantial completion, the next major milestone is the ":Operational Readiness Date,": or ":ORD,": which is when the project is turned over to Metro's custody and control. If MWAA completes all priority tasks in a timely manner, ORD may be achieved in late May, Sarles said.

Following ORD, Metro has up to 90 days for testing, employee training and emergency drills prior to the start of passenger service.

With Thursday's agreement, Sarles said Metro will permit MWAA to use this time to complete remaining tasks, including:

- Providing to Metro safety certification documentation demonstrating that all open items have been closed.

- Resolving traction power reliability issues.

- Executing a contract for the replacement of track circuit modules.

- Resolving leaks and drainage issues.

- Grounding of tunnel handrails and replacement of coaxial cable in the tunnel.

- Replacing public address speakers to meet Virginia Department of General Services requirements.

- Elevator shaft and piston replacement at Tysons Corner station.

- All work required to obtain permanent certificates of occupancy.

Silver Line's opening date will be set by the Metro Board of Directors after the project is in Metro's control, Sarles added.

Virginia high school students set to receive mandatory CPR training under new law

Virginia WJLA - Kathy Park - Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:28:34 EST

Students at Wakefield High School in Arlington will soon learn a lesson that could help save a life.

On Wednesday, the students received CPR training--a technique that all Virginia high school students will be required to learn before graduation. The students at Wakefield are getting a jump start on CPR education, which includes a 20-minute hands-on lesson with manikins.

Back in 2004, Laiba Ashraf's father suffered a heart attack.

“We didn't know what to do, so we called the police,” said Ashraf, a student at Wakefield.

While they were able to get her father medical attention right away, emergency responders say there was a fine line between life and death.

“If nothing is being done before we get there, which we've seen so many times, unfortunately we don't have much to work with,” said Capt. Bo Bennett with the Arlington County Fire Department.

The big push for students and faculty to learn life-saving techniques comes after the loss of 12-year-old Gwyneth Griffin of Stafford County.

“Last year, Gwyneth's law passed with the help of the Griffin family. Gwyneth was their middle school-aged daughter who passed away in school in Stafford County due to cardiac arrest,” said Traverso.

No one knew how to revive Griffin, but two years from now, every high school student in Virginia will have to train with automatic external defibrillators, emergency first aid, and in CPR before receiving a diploma.

“For every minute a victim is in cardiac arrest and they're not receiving bystander CPR, their chance of survival decreases by 7-10 percent,” said Steve Traverso with the American Heart Association.

A similar bill passed in Maryland last week, joining 14 other states with CPR requirements in place for students.
