Commuters who use the Park N’ Ride at Courthouse Road in Stafford County should be aware that the lot will be moving to a new permanent location at the end of July.

The new lot, with 600 parking spaces, will be located at Courthouse and Wyche Roads near Exit 140 off I-95, and will open July 30. All vehicles from the current Park N’ Ride lot must be removed by July 31.

While the new lot will open this month, construction will continue through 2020 to allow for capacity of 850 cars, as well as a dedicated lane for carpools and buses. In addition, a second, smaller parking lot will be installed on the opposite site of Courthouse Road, bringing the total capacity to more than 1,000 spaces.

The relocation of the Park N’ Ride comes as VDOT is constructing a new “diverging diamond” traffic pattern near the Exit 140 interchange.
