The Springfield Multi-Use Parking Garage is a six-level structure that will hold approximately 1,000 parking spaces, and will enhance commuters' transportation options with the installation of:
- a bus transit center and seven bus bays
- commuter (slug) spaces
- a short-term parking area for pick up and drop off
- a pedestrian bridge over Old Keene Mill Road, connecting the garage to Springfield Plaza
- bicycle storage
- community areas for gatherings and events on the ground level and roof top
Design is in progress, and construction is anticipated to begin in fall 2019 with the facility opening in early 2022. The County will be identifying alternate, temporary parking for the users of the existing park-and-ride lot to use during construction.
The total project estimate is $63.81 million, and is fully funded by the Federal Transit Agency, Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (Federal Highway Administration), and the Fairfax County Commercial and Industrial Tax.
In 2014, Fairfax County completed a feasibility study for a multi-use commuter parking facility and transit center identified in the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan. The facility will be constructed on an existing surface commuter parking lot owned by the County on Old Keene Mill Road west of I-95 in the Springfield Community Business Center.
