New Bike Racks on Wiehle-Reston East Station Plaza

We've reported on the need for more free bike parking at the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station. The free bike room adjacent to the paid secure bike room fills up on most days and bikes end up being locked to various objects in the room. One was even hanging from the fence recently.

According to development plans (Sheet 11, page 177), bike racks will be placed on the plaza outside the station entrance. We're pleased to report that a new set of inverted U racks was recently installed near the bike share station. The racks are not covered but they do provide an option for overflow parking from the bike room. Thanks to Comstock and Fairfax County for working with us to install these racks.

Capacity is 36 bikes. There were 54 parked on July 12.
