Construction on Station 25 in Reston has officially begun, according to the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department.
Steelwork began earlier this week on the $14.8 million project. Voters approved funding for the station via a bond referendum in 2015.
The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2021. A temporary fire station has been set up at 1800 Cameron Glen Drive.
The old facility was demolished earlier this year to make way for a larger facility. The new station is double the size of the previous site and features two stories with administrative offices, a dayroom, kitchen, storage and bunk rooms.
