Fire Station Costs Rise — “Changes mandated by the Virginia Department of Transportation and local code-enforcement staff are requiring a $450,000 infusion of Arlington government cash in support of rebuilding Fire Station #8 on Langston Boulevard at North Culpepper Street. County Board members on Feb. 24 are expected to approve the extra funding, which will bring to just under $19.5 million the total contract award.” [Gazette Leader]

Crash on Camera — From Dave Statter: “Here’s the video from the crash with one overturned at Army-Navy Drive & S. Hayes Street in Pentagon City, VA. This occurred shortly after 5:30 p.m. Lots of people stopped to help, including one person who ran off of a shuttle bus to pitch in.” [Twitter]

Black-Owned Businesses on the Pike — “As we celebrate Black Heritage Month, remember the significance of supporting small black-owned businesses on Columbia Pike. Not only do these businesses add to the diverse cultural fabric of the area, but they also represent the hard work and determination of the black community. Columbia Pike is home to many black-owned businesses that offer unique products and services that cannot be found elsewhere. By supporting these businesses, you are helping to preserve the cultural heritage of the area and promote economic growth in the community.” [Columbia Pike Partnership]

Fairfax Connector Strike — “Fairfax Connector workers have launched a strike after months of negotiations for a new labor contract with Transdev, the company that operates Fairfax County’s bus service. Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 689, which represents about 638 bus operators and mechanics for Fairfax Connector, announced the strike just after midnight today (Thursday).” [FFXnow]

The southwest wind of 7 to 10 mph will shift to the northwest in the morning, with a 50% chance of precipitation.
