In other transit news, the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority and WMATA are *thiiiiissssss* close to transferring the much delayed Silver Line project to WMATA. MWAA has handled the construction of the extension of Metrorail into Tysons Corner and Reston, while WMATA has been waiting to take over and actually operate the line. My rough estimate for opening: September 2014.

Free wifi in NoMa? Yes, according to NoMa Business Improvement District. The BID has installed wireless routers along streets and sidewalks throughout the neighborhood. For now, the free, public service is available along First St NE from H St to New York Ave, L St NE from North Capitol to First and a few other side streets. They plan to expand the service as time goes on. Pretty cool!
