Media Alert: Arlington County, NVTA Officials to Celebrate Completion

Published on May 11, 2017

Arlington County Board Chair and Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) member Jay Fisette and NVTA Chairman Martin E. Nohe, along with other county officials and representatives from the NVTA, will celebrate the completion of the Crystal City Multimodal Center on Thursday, May 18 at a ceremony outside the Crystal City Metrorail Station.

The ceremony will highlight improvements to expand bus capacity around the Crystal City Metrorail Station, one of the most highly used Metro stations in Arlington. The project also creates a safer and more efficient area for the more than 20,000 people who travel to the station each day, with new designated curb space for shuttles and kiss-n-ride, new bus shelters, improved sidewalks and crosswalks, and new lighting.

This project was made possible by funding from the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority.
