Demolition has begun on the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department’s Station 25 in Reston.
After some delays, crews began the effort on Friday (March 20) to make way for a new fire station on 1820 Wiehle Avenue.
The project is expected to wrap up in the summer of 2021. Fire and rescue personnel are currently working from a temporary station at 1800 Cameron Glen Drive near the North County Government Center.
With a price tag of $14.8 million, the new fire station will have double the capacity, two levels, and space for administrative offices, a kitchen, storage, and bunk rooms.
The area around the fire station is slated for major redevelopment, some of which is already underway.
