Road Closure Will Affect Wiehle-Reston East Traffic

Cars waiting to get into Reston Station garages at 7:45 a.m. MondayParts of Reston Station Boulevard will be closed to traffic for several days beginning Saturday in order to remove the giant crane that has been in place to build the BLVD Apartments.

The closure starts Saturday, April 25 and run through Wednesday, April 29, Metro officials said.

Customers who use the Park-and-Ride, the Kiss-and-Ride, or Fairfax Connector bus service at Wiehle-Reston East may be affected.

Park-and-Ride and Kiss-and-Ride patrons should enter and depart the Metro station site from Sunset Hills Road and Metro Center Drive. Access to the main Park-and-Ride entrance and exit, and the Kiss-and-Ride will not be available from Wiehle Avenue.

Access to the auxiliary Park-and-Ride entrance and exit will be available from Wiehle Avenue; however, the work zone will be positioned from the auxiliary entrance to the Kiss-and-Ride and primary Park-and-Ride entrance, and no access will be available through the work zone.

Fairfax Connector routes that travel via the western portion of Reston Station Boulevard will operate on a detour during this project:

  • RIBS 2 buses will bypass Metro Center Drive and Kaiser Permanente. Buses will serve stops along Sunset Hills Road and at the Wiehle Metro station for access to Kaiser Permanente.
  • Route 505, 952, 981, 983, and RIBS 4 buses will detour via eastbound Reston Station Boulevard and Wiehle Avenue in the direction of westbound Sunset Hills Road and Reston Town Center.
