How will we access the Tysons Metro stations?

When the four Dulles rail extension stations open in Tysons Corner in 2013, where will the nearest bus stops be located? Which trails and sidewalks will lead into the stations?  And how will cyclists be able to access them? 

Fairfax County is asking for the public’s input on transit, pedestrian and bicycle access improvements needed when the stations open as part of the Tysons Metrorail Stations Access Management Study . Four public input sessions are scheduled for this month. An advisory group that includes representatives from the Providence, Dranesville and Hunter Mill districts; the Tysons Transportation Association ( TYTRAN); and the Town of Vienna is spearheading the study.

Three recent studies, the Fairfax County Transit Development Plan, the Tysons Corner Sidewalk Analysis and the Tysons Corner Bicycle Master Plan, will provide the basis for improvements recommended in the station access study. Current bicycle and pedestrian projects will be presented at the public meetings.

The final report, which is scheduled to be released in June, will feature public input and prioritize the recommended bus transit, pedestrian and bicycle facility improvements.

The meetings will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at McLean High School, 1633 Davidson Road; from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at George C. Marshall High School, 7731 Leesburg Pike; from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday at the Teqcorner Building, 1616 Anderson Road; and from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Thursday at Westbriar Elementary School, 1741 Pine Valley Drive.
