A portion of Edmund Halley Drive has been transferred to state

A portion of Edmund Halley Drive has officially been transferred over to the state.

At a Tuesday meeting, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to transfer a section of the road to the Secondary System of State Highways, a move made in preparation of the completion of phase two of the Silver Line.

The move — which was stipulated in proffer agreements for the Reston Crossing project — allows the state to have unrestricted right-of-way along the road.

The formerly private street was improved with bike lanes, a trail, and a sidewalk in order to meet requirements in the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan.

The street was also widened to meet requirements set by the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The street will connect to the Reston Town Center Metro Station from Sunrise Valley Drive.

New York-based company Tishman Speyer is developing Reston Crossing, a two-million-square development south of the Dulles Toll Road between Edmund Halley Drive and Reston Parkway.

The project was approved in 2019.
