Crews constructing the Reston Town Center Metro station will begin a pile-driving operation later this week in the median of the Dulles Toll Road just west of Reston Parkway.

Pile driving, which pounds steel piles into the soil to support foundations for the rail station, is slated to begin Friday, Feb. 5.

Adjacent businesses and residences surrounding this work area can expect noise. Pile driving usually is done in intervals of about 15 minutes with a similar break in between activities.

In addition, drivers are asked to use caution and pay attention to signage along this section of the Dulles Toll Road and Dulles International Airport Access road.

The Reston Town Center station will be the first stop on Phase 2 of the Silver Line, which will run from Wiehle-Reston East to Dulles International Airport and into Ashburn. It is expected to open in 2020.
