The Orange Line was the third leg of the Washington Metro to open, though service began running in 1978 as a one way service along the existing Blue Line from New Carrollton to National Airport. It wasn’t until a year later in 1979 that the Orange Line was extended out to Ballston when it began running in both directions. In 1986 the line was extended out to Vienna. Plans at the time to reroute the line through the fast developing Tysons Corner were eventually dropped to prevent a five year delay in construction.
These plans were resurrected with the Silver Line being built through Tysons Corner on its way to Dulles Airport. The Orange Line through Virginia runs along the median of Interstate 66 from Vienna to Falls Church. Originally the line was to run along the median of I-66 through Arlington but city planners rerouted it through downtown Arlington which helped stimulate dense residential development in central Arlington.
From Roslyn to Stadium-Armory the Orange and Blue lines share their downtown subway tunnel and split after ascending to the surface on a bridge over the Anacostia River. From here the Orange Line runs alongside the CSX/Amtrak ROW to New Carrollton.
