Wiehle Ave Metrorail station bike room under constructionToday Fairfax County staff are installing bike racks and other equipment in the Wiehle Ave Metrorail station bike room that is part of the Reston Station development by Comstock. The room will have secure, card-accessed parking for approximately 240 bikes. There will be racks outside the bike room available to everyone. There will also be two Fixit stations similar to, if not the same as, the Fixit station made by Dero. The fee structure and card system for accessing the bike room have not been finalized.
Here's a photo of some of the racks being installed today. The tall black racks will accommodate several bikes hung by their front wheel. The red U racks leaning against the will each hold 2 bikes and will be lined up around the room:
We just learned today that Phase I of the Dulles Rail project, which includes the Wiehle station, will be delayed by approximately eight weeks. The original start date for Metro service was late December. The delay pushes that date back at least until late February.
