Metrorail Stations Landscaping Areas Get a Sprucing Up

After a long hot summer, areas around the Spring Hill and McLean Metrorail stations have been spruced up in a joint maintenance effort by Fairfax County and the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project.

These areas, kiss and ride lots and entrance pavilions, will soon be turned over to the county for maintenance as the rail project finishes up details of non-serve related work in the Tysons Corner area, including some paving replacements.  The clean-up came after some business leaders in the area raised concerns about maintenance.

In addition, rail project officials this fall are doing  what’s called a warranty walk-through of all areas where landscaping and planting work was done post rail construction.

The plantings are all on warranty and those that have not survived will be replaced, according to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority’s Al Kolodne who is in charge the close-out of Phase 1 of the rail project.
