Fairfax County Officials Remove Barrier to New Pedestrian Connection in Tysons

Plans can now move forward for a pedestrian and bicycle connection in Tysons East.

Tysons Park Place II, LLC is looking to create the connection from the existing structured parking garage to a sidewalk along the Jones Branch Connector.

The new connection would improve walkability to a future redevelopment.

“This connection would provide pedestrians and bicyclists with a more direct site access to/from the Tysons East area and the McLean Metrorail Station when compared to the existing connections from Jones Branch Drive,” according to county staff.

On Tuesday, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted to support a break of the limited access line, which the proposed pedestrian connection would cross.

Prior to the board’s vote, the limited access line was restricting the creation of the new connection, county staff said.
