Local, state, and federal leaders were on hand to cut the ribbon on the South Washington Transportation and History Plaza
On April 20, leaders from across the Commonwealth of Virginia came together to cut the ribbon on the South Washington Transportation and History Plaza in Falls Church. This project, completed by Fort Myer Construction, provides a multimodal plaza with new bus shelters, bike racks, rain garden for stormwater retention, underground utilities, and storytelling panels.
The storytelling panels were a collaboration between Fall Church City, Tinner Hill Heritage Foundation, and the Falls Church Village Preservation and Improvement Society.
"This project really connects our historic venues of the area for important community and city storytelling," said Falls Church Assistant City Manager Cindy Mester.
"I'm grateful for those that collaborated with us to build the history panels here that conducted that storytelling."
Fort Myer Construction is proud to celebrate the city’s history, help residents stay on the move, and create a public space that will be treasured for generations.
