Herndon-Monroe Commuter Garage Access Through Dulles Toll Road Nov. 10-26, 2017

Due to construction of the new Fairfax County commuter parking garage at the future Metrorail Silver Line’s Herndon Station site, the access road from Sunrise Valley Drive to the Herndon-Monroe park and ride facility will be closed starting Friday. Nov. 10, through Sunday, Nov. 26, 2017.

  • Commuters who wish to use the existing Herndon-Monroe garage during this time will need to enter and exit the facility via the Dulles Toll Road (Rt. 267). This detour will require drivers to pay a $1.00 toll upon exiting the garage with an E-Z Pass or exact change.
  • Commuters can alternatively consider using the  Reston South Park and Ride located at the intersection of Reston Parkway and Fox Mill Road (parking is free but limited); or the commuter parking garage located at the Wiehle-Reston East Metrorail Station (parking costs $4.95 per day, payable by SmartTrip card, or credit and debit card ONLY.)
