Plans underway to improve pedestrian access to Innovation Station

The county is working on plans to improve pedestrian connectivity to Innovation Center Metro Station, which is expected to open sometime this year.

A new shared-use path is planned from the station to adjacent neighborhoods. A virtual community meeting is set for Wednesday, Jan. 19 at 7 p.m. to discuss the project.

A 10-foot-wide and 2,000-foot shared use path will connect the station’s kiss and ride parking lot to the residential community at Farougi Court and the townhome community at Apgar Place. Two bridges for pedestrians and cyclists are also planned.

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation kicked off the project in 2017 with a feasibility study.

The station is tentatively expected to open in May this year, although the opening date is contingent on several factors.

Phase two of the Silver Line will provide an 11.5-mile extension into Loudoun County.
