Petition update

Why create a TSD now . . .

Reston 20/20

Nov 14, 2016 — . . . when it will take two decades to implement most of the proposed street improvements?

At the community meeting last week, it was revealed that the Soapstone Connector, recommended for construction by RMAG--the Board-appointed committee that looked at transpo needs related to the arrival of Metro--in 2009, will not be opened for construction bidding until the middle of the next decade. It won't be completed until late in the 2020s.

So while Reston's TSAs may get patched sidewalks (which is about all that has been done by the County of the several dozen transportation improvements recommended by the RMAG), don't expect any substantial roadway improvements for about 20 years--even though development is going on unabated.

FWIW: Comstock actually completed substantial proffered improvements in intersections around Wiehle Station promptly, while the County continues to doddle.
