Rail Construction to Impact Parking at Reston East Park and Ride
September 30, 2010
Parking spaces at Reston East Park and Ride on Wiehle Avenue north of the Dulles Toll Road will be impacted by Dulles Rail construction as early as November 28, 2010. Reston East Park and Ride is the location of the future parking garage for the Wiehle Avenue Metrorail station, the last of five stations in Phase I of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project, scheduled to open in late 2013.
The construction project is expected to require closing of approximately 200 of 820 parking spaces on or about Nov. 28 for preliminary utility work.
Construction is not expected to be fully active until March 2011, at which time all 820 parking spaces will be closed until work is completed on a new 2,300-space Metrorail parking facility. The county is actively looking for additional parking spaces and will post additional parking options on the Fairfax Connector Web site as they are confirmed.
