The Arlington County government is moving forward with planning for reconstruction of its Arlington Transit (ART) operations and maintenance facility, located on Shirlington Road in the Four Mile Run/Green Valley area.
County Board members have been asked to approve a contract of roughly $3.9 million for planning, design and construction-administration services for the $81 million project. Stantec Architecture is receiving the contract.
County officials had been leasing the 2.5-acre site for storage and operation of the ART bus fleet before purchasing it for about $24 million. When construction of the modernized facility begins, county officials will need to find a temporary location for bus maintenance and storage.
Community feedback on the project will be sought through fall and winter, county officials said.
