Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe (D) toured the Reston Station construction site Thursday to hear what the next Governor can do to help promote infrastructure development and economic growth.
Reston Station is being developed through a public-private partnership between Comstock Partners and Fairfax County. It will be the site of the 2,300 commuter parking garage spaces and the mixed-use development planned at the Wiehle-East Silver Line Metro stop.
“We need successful infrastructure projects in Virginia because they create jobs when we build them and add tremendous value for communities and neighborhoods that will now be served by transit,” McAuliffe said. “We must continue to find mainstream solutions to improve our infrastructure, grow the economy, and make Virginia more attractive to businesses and families.”
The parking structure is expected to be completed next year, and trains are expected to start arriving at Reston Station in December 2013.
