Redesign To Cut Traffic in Tysons Corner

A recently approved plan to redesign Tysons Corner, Virginia, to be more transit- and pedestrian-friendly would help reduce traffic, according to this column from The Washington Post.

The plan is mainly aimed at encouraging economic growth by making the area into a more attractive "urban village".

"Tuesday's vote by Fairfax County supervisors to approve a long-term plan to redo Tysons as a walkable, livable community was a milestone for the region. Experts say it also could be a blueprint for the rest of the nation. It offers a jumbo alternative to the traditional suburban lifestyle of a single-family home with two-car garage and a lengthy commute.

'This is going to be the most exciting large-scale redevelopment initiative in the United States,' said Adam Ducker, managing director of RCLCO, a national real estate advisory firm headquartered in Bethesda."
