Local law enforcement officials and the Metro Transit Police will be conducting an exercise at a Metro station set to open as part of the new silver line.
Metro assumed control of the Silver Line on Tuesday, giving hope that the behind-schedule rail project could open this summer.
The agency that operates the region’s Metrorail system expects to take control of the behind-schedule Silver Line extension through Tysons Corner later this month.
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority has approved the first phase of the Silver Line project, it announced Thursday, and the line can now be passed on to Metro for further testing.

The first phase of Metro’s Silver Line, which includes five stations from East Falls Church to Wiehle Avenue in Reston, appears complete.
For a third time, officials say construction delays will push back the scheduled opening of a $2.8 billion extension of the region’s Metrorail system in northern Virginia.
Metro riders will get their first look at the system’s new rail cars, which will replace some cars that date back to the system’s debut in 1976.
The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority is again pushing back its expected completion date for construction of the new Silver Line through Tysons Corner.
The first phase of Metro’s $2.8 billion extension in Virginia is now expected to be completed in November to open in early 2014.
