Springfield is moving up on the list of locations for the new FBI Headquarters!
A recent analysis shows that the Springfield location is the quickest commute compared to two other locations in Maryland, even for those who live in Maryland. The analysis took into account travel times to each of the three locations from 20 different locations in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. Final results showed that the Springfield location would cut 3-4 hours from the commuters’ monthly drive. In addition, the Franconia-Springfield metro station would make it increasingly easy for anyone to get to the headquarters using transit systems. The Springfield location is also closer to the FBI training center in Quantico than either Maryland locations.
Overall, the choice is easy; Springfield is the best option for the FBI Headquarters. The newly renovated Springfield Town Center and metro station provide an ideal atmosphere for the facility, and it would bring jobs and profit to our community. The plan has been backed by Gov. McAuliffe, Senators Warner and Kaine, and by our local Congressmen and woman Don Beyer, Gerry Connolly, and Barbara Comstock. They all agree that Springfield offers the best location for the FBI, and so do I!
