Below is a link to an article in today’s Post about Tyson’s.  The planners project a need for $15 Billion (yes that is Billion) in infrastructure over the life of the plan to fund infrastructure.  As most of you know White Flint requires only about $500 Million plus some operating costs of approximately $400 million according to the County Executive and the plan creates $7 Billion in NET new tax revenue for the County.  This is just one of many reasons why White Flint makes so much cents!

More lanes, increases from 4 to 8 lanes, ramps and overpasses, and parking garages. Sounds like Tysons could use White Flint’s help in designing for the pedestrian rather than the automobile!
