Transportation Funding

In June 2010, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors adopted a new Comprehensive Plan for Tysons. The plan will transform Tysons into a transit-oriented mixed-use urban center. A major component of this plan is a redesigned transportation system that maximizes the advantages of establishing four new Metrorail stations. This new transportation system will include a vastly improved street network, better pedestrian and bicycle routes, community shuttles, and improved transit systems both within Tysons and connecting Tysons to the surrounding neighborhoods. All of these improvements will reduce the time, cost, and inconvenience of getting to and moving within Tysons.  More information on the Tysons Comprehensive Plan Transportation Improvements is available in the Transportation section.

The Board of Supervisors has directed the Tysons Corner Committee of the Planning Commission to work on potential strategies and arrangements for funding the needed infrastructure and report back to the Board on how to best address these issues.

Staff has created a preliminary proposal on how to share costs between the private and the public sectors. The preliminary proposal represents staff thoughts at this time and will change based upon discussions with the community and Tysons Corner Committee.

Funding Presentations:

July 14, 2011: Implementing Transportation Improvements in Tysons, was presented to the Tysons Committee of the Planning Commission.

Dec. 15, 2010: Preliminary Staff Proposal for Funding Tysons Transportation, provided a preliminary staff proposal for allocating funding responsibility between the public and private sectors. It is based upon improvements recommended in the adopted Comprehensive Plan and reviewed shared funding models previously used in Fairfax County.
