Chat Today: Fairfax County Transportation Officials Have SafeTrack Answers

Fairfax CountyIt’s almost here. Metro’s first SafeTrack work begins on Saturday. Are you ready with alternative commuting plans?

The first of 15 “safety surges” will affect Reston-area residents and workers as the repairs be on the Silver and Orange line lines.

After many recent delays and safety incidents, Metro is implementing the intensive schedule in order to make three years of necessary repairs in about a year.


To avoid gridlock, commuters are urged to consider carpooling, vanpooling, taking the bus, biking and teleworking as often as possible during Metro’s ongoing work.

Nick Perfili and Ciara Williams from Fairfax County Department of Transportation will be online Thursday, June 2 at noon to answer your questions about commuter options in the county. Log on live or submit your questions to learn more.
