Reston Area Metrorail Station Access Improvement Projects


Reston area station access projects improve pedestrian, vehicle, and bicycle connections to and from the new Silver Line Metro stations. The majority of projects in the Reston area are being constructed as part of the Silver Line project or with FCDOT funding to improve Metro station access. The list of projects is, in part, the result of work undertaken by Reston Metrorail Access Group.
