Board of Supervisors Recommends Names for Dulles Metrorail Stations
March 29, 2011
Today, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors recommended names for the eight Metrorail stations that are part of the Dulles Metrorail Project. The names, which must be approved by the Washington Metro Transit Authority board of directors, are as follows:
- Tysons I & II
- Tysons Central
- Tysons-Spring Hill Rd
- Reston-Wiehle Ave
- Reston Town Center
- Herndon-Reston West
- Herndon-Dulles East
Each proposed station name connotes a community: Tysons, Reston, Herndon, or McLean. Some include street names while others include the name of shopping malls and a town center.
The 23-mile transit line will run from Tysons to Dulles International Airport to the rest of the region, and the project comprises a total of 11 Metrorail stations, eight of which are located in Fairfax County.
The stations from Tysons-McLean to Reston-Wiehle Ave are scheduled to be operational in mid-2013.
