The Board of Supervisors approved the aptly named new development on July 31 and it marks the first major new development on the north side of this station.” [Fairfax County Government]

    If there’s paid parking at Reston Gateway, they can forget it.

  • Stop Virginia

    Lol, all this hype about the metro- nobody ever points out the trains are frequently 30 minutes apart with single tracking and the need to switch trains before even crossing into dc. Pathetic.

    • Mike M

      Pay no attention to the fact that Metro is sick. We want more, more, more!

    • Greg

      Hey, it was a bargain at $6 billion (and climbing), no?

      Another Hudgins fiasco
      She should have been fired before the damage was done

  • Why do you bother?

    You couldn’t pay me enough to depend on Metro.
