VDOT has begun resurfacing five of the Park and Ride lots in our region in the coming months. Lots will be closed for at least 15 consecutive days depending on weather. The lots will not be accessible during the resurfacing, except for Gordon Rd, which will be sectioned off. A list of the Park and Ride lots in our region with the referenced number codes below can be found here: https://www.gwrideconnect.org/commuter-lots/
For the Park and Ride commuter lots below, this work requires the lots to be closed for 15 consecutive days, weather permitting. Construction is being staggered to allow lot users to relocate on a temporary basis to the closest convenient Park and Ride lot.
The following lots will be resurfaced this fall:
- Old Salem Church Road: Resurfacing work complete. The lot has reopened. A small portion of the lot remains closed due to drainage work.
- Gordon Road and Route 3: Work is underway. Lots B, C, and D are closed, while lot A remains open for parking. Work began on Monday, September 18
- Falmouth (Route 17)
- Mine Road South: Work is underway. Lot is closed. Work began on Tuesday, September 12
- Carmel Church: Work is complete. The lot has reopened.
Due to the size of the Gordon Road Park and Ride lot, resurfacing work will be accomplished in sections and this lot will always remain open for parking with a reduced number of spaces. Lot sections B, C, and D will close first for resurfacing, and then once complete, section A will close for resurfacing. View the map of the lot here.
Before resurfacing begins in a lot, message boards will be posted to notify lot users.

The project contractor is Superior Paving.
Additional Park and Ride Improvements
A $350,000 project for concrete repairs is already underway at spot locations in the Fredericksburg area Park and Ride lots. Crews are repairing damaged curbs and sidewalk panels. All ramps will be made accessible.
Planning efforts are also underway to identify and replace bus shelters and bicycle racks as needed in area Park and Ride lots.
