Crosswalks Not Included for New Silver Line Stations in Tysons Corner
"Tysons now has four Metro stations, but workers trying to get from those stations to nearby offices often have no choice but to cross wide, high-speed roads without any crosswalks," reports Ken Archer.
Archer provides more of the details on the conditions that commuters will face when navigating street crossings near the new stations, which opened to the public last weekend.
The obvious, tragic conclusion: "It's a matter of time before a Silver Line rider is struck by a car in Tysons Corner."
The obvious, tragic question: How did planners, with the amount of lead time they had in the planning and construction of the Silver Line and its stations, fail to provide safe ingress and egress from the new stations?
