For Immediate Release
August 2, 2022
Fairfax County seeks input from the public to help determine which elements of "community charm" should be included in the design of each Richmond Highway Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) station! We asked you for input about potential themes for each station area in 2020 and 2021, and now we are asking for final input into choosing each station theme.
The "Community Charm" initiative is focused on integrating artwork into each BRT station to reflect the history, identity, and character of the neighborhoods surrounding each station area. Students from local schools to design artwork for the windscreen area based on themes developed with the community.
Visit fairfaxcounty.gov/transportation/richmond-hwy-brt for more information about the Richmond Highway BRT Project. This project is funded, in part, by the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority.
