Proposals for three developments on the border of Fairfax and Loudoun counties, just north of the planned Route 28 Metro Station, have prompted unprecedented cooperation between the politicians and staffs of two counties, as well as the town of Herndon, which the developments would neighbor. However, a dispute between landowners is now causing friction between Fairfax and Loudoun.

At the second meeting of an interjurisdictional panel with representatives of the three localities on Friday, Feb. 19, members of the two boards of supervisors sparred over whose property a proposed bridge over the Dulles Toll Road should land on. The bridge was the main topic of the meeting.

Fairfax County staff presented three options for the traffic and pedestrian overpass, which it considers essential to the transportation network that would support the new developments. All three alternatives would take off from Sunrise Valley Drive at the point where it veers from an east-west route to a north-south alignment. . . .
