Richmond Highway Transit Center
Location Fairfax County Virginia
Organization Fairfax County Health Department

The Fairfax County Health Department conducted a health impact assessment (HIA) to examine the potential health effects of developing a new transit center along the Richmond Highway Corridor, which connects major commercial, residential, and recreational areas in Northern Virginia. The HIA aimed to inform the site selection process for the new transit center and offered recommendations to strengthen public health benefits and minimize health risks for residents living near the potential sites.
