Our Springfield of Tomorrow

Developing Critical Infrastructure

Franconia-Springfield Metro Station

Service began Summer 1997, connecting the bedroom community of

Springfield to Washington DC and the Pentagon, just as

Shirley Highway, now I-395, had done in 1949 when

Springfield was little more than a whistle stop with a

population of 300

The Metro Station, now called the Joe Alexander Transportation

Center, soon becomes multi-modal with the addition of Metro

and Fairfax Connector bus service, and later the addition of

VRE and Greyhound service
