Fairfax County Fire and Rescue’s Station 25 should be complete and occupied by the end of this year.

That’s the most recent timeline for the project (1820 Wiehle Ave.), according to the department’s director of public information, Ashley Hildebrandt.

“Station personnel are very excited about the new station,” she says in an email.

Demolition on the former station began in March 2020 for the nearly $15 million project that will double the size of Station 25.

The former station was 2 1/2 bays, designed in 1972 and had “become undersized” and lacked “inadequate critical infrastructure and support functions to meet the needs of the expanding department and the community it serves,” according to a description by the project’s architect.

The new station has four bays and makes other adjustments for more firefighters to be located there, such as by providing 41 parking spaces.

Firefighters have temporarily relocated to 1840 Cameron Glen Drive during the construction to continue providing service.
