Tysons Fire Station #29 and Bus Transit Facility

Project Update: January 5, 2021

The Tysons Fire Station and Bus Transit Facility Project website is now alive.

Project Background

In June 2010, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors adopted the Tysons Corner Comprehensive Plan which includes a relocation of the existing Tysons Fire Station and identifies areas for additional fire stations to support development over the next twenty years. In 2011, a replacement of the existing Tysons Fire Station was negotiated as part of a development proffer. In 2020, the Bus Transit Center project was included as part of the County Transportation Improvements Plan.

Project Description

The new fire station is proposed to be a two-story, approximate 20,000 square foot (SF), five-bay station; and the new bus transit facility is a one-story, approximately 2,100 SF, five bay bus transit facility. Together, these two buildings sit on a 4.2-acre parcel which is currently used for West*Park Transit Center.

The project is adopting Construction Management at Risk as deliver method.
