Updating BRT Station Names

Updating BRT Station Names

The community spoke out and officials listened.

In response to community ideas about better ways to reflect station location and community character, the Fairfax County Department of Transportation is revisiting station names for three of the nine BRT stations. Attendees are invited to share ideas about what they think the station names should be. The three stations are:

* Station #2  at N Kings Hwy / S Kings Hwy.; Current proposed name "Penn Daw"

* Station #5 at Boswell Ave / Fordson Rd.; Current proposed name "Hybla Valley"

* Station #6 at Sherwood Hall Ln.; Current proposed name "Gum Springs"

An open house to submit the name ideas will be held Oct.12, from 6:30 - 8 p.m., Hybla Valley Community Center, 7950 Audubon Ave., Alexandria.

Drop in anytime - there will not be a presentation.
