HOUSER DRIVE PARK AND RIDE COMMUTER LOT RESURFACING BEGINS MARCH 4 IN SPOTSYLVANIA

HOUSER DRIVE PARK AND RIDE COMMUTER LOT RESURFACING BEGINS MARCH 4 IN SPOTSYLVANIA
Parking will be prohibited for 15 consecutive days while work is underway

Resurfacing will begin on Monday, March 4, at the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Park and Ride commuter lot at Houser Drive near Route 208 (Courthouse Road) and Route 636 (Hood Drive) intersection in Spotsylvania County.

The lot will be closed for 15 consecutive days starting March 4 through March 19, weather permitting.

This work is part of a $900,000 maintenance project to resurface the Houser Drive Park and Ride lot in Spotsylvania County and refresh pavement markings at the Staffordboro Park and Ride lot in Stafford County.

The Staffordboro Park and Ride lot pavement marking refreshment will occur on weekends only and a start date will be announced at a later date once determined.

To find an alternative Park and Ride lot location, visit the VDOT Park and Ride interactive map.

The project contractor is Allan Myers.

Additional Park and Ride Improvements:  A $350,000 project for concrete repairs is already underway at spot locations in 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.

For the last several months, GWRC, with support from Foursquare ITP, has worked to develop an FY25-FY29 Commuter Assistance Program Strategic Plan for the GWRideConnect program, with input from the community, local governments, and other stakeholders through a public survey, stakeholder workshop, focus group discussion, and Commission presentations. The draft plan is now available for public review and comment. To submit feedback on the plan, please contact Leigh Anderson, GWRideConnect Program Director at leigh.anderson@gwregion.org or (540) 642-1573. We are accepting public comments on the draft plan document until November 15, 2023. The final plan, incorporating feedback received during the public comment period, will be presented to the GWRC Board for adoption at their November 27, 2023 meeting.
