Fairfax Inks Deal for Phase II Metro Station

Fairfax County inked a real estate deal Tuesday that allows it to move forward on building an approximately 2,100-space garage for the Innovation Center Metro Station. This garage is one of two that the county will build as part of the Silver Line’s second phase.

Fairfax committed to constructing them as part of the agreement reached three years ago to pay for the rail line’s second leg. “Fairfax County vigorously pursued public-private partnerships to help defray the cost and make Phase II of the Silver Line a reality,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova. “I am proud to approve this agreement and look forward to cutting the ribbon on this garage as we did on the now-open Wiehle-Reston East station garage, another public-private partnership.”
