Reston East Park and Ride to Begin Closing in Stages Feb. 25
February 22, 2011
Parking spaces at Reston East Park and Ride on Wiehle Avenue north of the Dulles Toll Road will be impacted by Dulles Rail-related construction starting February 25, 2011. Reston East Park and Ride is the location of the future parking garage for the Wiehle Avenue Metrorail station. Reston East Park and Ride is projected to close completely on April 3, 2011. Dates are based on the construction schedule and are subject to change.
On Feb. 25, 130 parking spaces in the small, northern annex lot of Reston East will be closed at midnight for construction equipment staging. Vehicles parked in the northern annex after closure may be towed.
On Apr. 3, the new Sunset Hills Park and Ride will open. The lot is located at the corner of Sunset Hills Road and Town Center Parkway. Route 505 and a new Route 555 provide service from Sunset Hills Park and Ride to West Falls Church Metro Station. Sunset Hills Park and Ride is a temporary lot that will close after the Wiehle Avenue parking garage opens.
On Apr. 3, Reston East will close completely. Minor schedule changes will take effect for routes 505, 551, 552, 554 and 557, which will bypass Reston East and go directly to and from West Falls Church Metro Station. Route 505 will serve the new Sunset Hills Park and Ride via a minor routing modification, and continue to operate all-day service to and from West Falls Church Metro.
