Fairfax County has come up with its suggested names for the new Silver Line stations going from Tysons to Dulles, and as expected they’re all dogs. None has any spark, named after a local hero or institution. Yeah yeah, it’s gotta be geographically relevant, I know.
So here’s what Fairfax, with input from more than 16,000 people (and one formal write-in vote for the DAVE GROHL STATION)(Five Grammys, come on!) and their own bureaucratic precision, is going to submit to the Metro board:
Tysons East would be called McLean.
Tysons Central 123 would be called Tysons Corner. I kinda liked the Central 123.
Tysons Central 7 would be called Greensboro Park, for the vast valley of generic office towers nearby.
Tysons West would become Spring Hill.
Wiehle Avenue would be Wiehle-Reston East.
Reston Parkway would be Reston Town Center.
Herndon-Monroe would be Herndon.
Route 28 would be Innovation, for nearby Innovation Road. That one’s a winner, the best of the bunch.
The Metro board is supposed to decide by spring, all-knowing Post reporter Dana Hedgpeth informs.
