The Innovation Station North Neighborhood Access project will provide a direct pedestrian and bicycle connection from the Innovation Metrorail Station to the adjacent neighborhoods. The project will consist of constructing a 10’ wide, approximately 2,000’ long shared use path. The path will connect the recently constructed Innovation Metrorail Station North Pavilion Kiss and Ride Parking Lot to the residential community at Farougi Court and the townhome community at Apgar Place. The connection will significantly reduce the trip length between the station and surrounding neighborhoods.
Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) held a community meeting regarding the Innovation Center Station North-Side Shared-Use Path Feasibility study (Dranesville District) on Thursday, June 29, 2017.
For further information about Metro and related development, see the Silver Line page and the Innovation Center Station Garage page with the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services. Please note the north-side path is on the opposite side of the Toll Road from the garage, and is a different project. The meeting will focus on the path and connectivity north of the station.
