Is Reston on Track? Reston Patch article, Karen Goff, November 11, 2010

As Reston eyes the opening of the Wiehle Avenue Metrorail station in late 2013, developers, county officials and transportation planners are working towards making sure roads,  pedestrian walkways,  bike paths and circulator buses work in harmony with the changes to the community.

Hunter Mill Supervisor Cathy Hudgins told attendees at the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce lunch Wednesday that there needs to be nearly $105 million (in 2007 dollars, as the initial consultant's report on this was completed in 2008) in place to make necessary infrastructure changes in the areas close to the Metro stations.

So far, the county has $1.2 million in proffers, $4 million in grants and has requested another $4 million in regional funds through the Virginia Department of Transportation, said Hudgins. . . .
