At Reston Station, A Long Winter's Nap, Plus Bollards That Are Significantly Less Fanciful Than We'd Been Led To Believe

Wiehle Avenue Station
Our Facebook BFFs at Reston Station posted this lovely photo of a pre-snowstorm sunset at the Wiehle Avenue Metro Station's much-touted civic plaza. It's eerily deserted, but we guess that's going to be the case for a bit longer now.

And we noticed something else. The once-fanciful concrete bollards appear to have been replaced by these glowy stick things:

Glowy Bollard
FEELING ALL THE FEELS. There are no words.


  1. That feel when no bollards.

  2. Oh good! A back rest and a night light for when I beg for some spare change.

    They thought of everything!

  3. Reston Station doesn't have much Metro news to report, but the recipes look delicious!

  4. Reminds me of Lake Anne Plaza on a busy day.

  5. Ah, at last Chernobyl-on-DTR is aglow.

    I just can't believe that someone would do that to a perfectly good bollard.

  7. Brutalist architecture, now with glass!
