Tysons Partnership to Host Virtual Event on Transportation Challenges

Tysons Partnership plans to host a virtual meeting tomorrow (Wednesday) to tackle transportation issues in the area.

The meeting will address recent challenges people face this year — including the Silver and Orange lines shutting down this summer to providing space so pedestrians and cyclists can social distance.

The event will include local employers, retail and office owners and county staff focused on transit and economic development to talk about how to creatively address transportation issues caused or impacted by COVID-19, according to the event’s description.

Panelists will include:

  • Hillary Zahm of Macerich
  • Jon Griffith of Capital One
  • Alex Iams of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority
  • Eric Teitelman of the Fairfax County Department of Transportation
  • Andrea Ostrodka of Toole Design
  • Michael Rodriguez of Smart Growth America

The meeting is open to the public and set to run from 4-5 p.m. People will receive the link to the Zoom webinar after they register for free.
