Project News and Updates

Construction on the Springfield Multi-Use Transit Center is postponed from the previously scheduled start date of March 2020 due to the additional requirements to modify construction documents that adhere to federal bidding and construction regulations. Construction is tentatively expected to begin in December 2020.  As was discussed at a community meeting last fall, the Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) has identified alternative, temporary parking for users of the existing park-and-ride lot during construction, until the new Springfield Garage is completed in the spring of 2023.  The public will be notified at least two months ahead of the park and ride closure and the relocation plan for slug lines that currently operate at the Old Keene Mill commuter lot will be: 

FCDOT held a community meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 20, to update Springfield commuters on temporary plans during construction. The meeting took place in the cafeteria of Forestdale Elementary School, 6530 Elder Ave., from 7-9 p.m.

Project Background

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

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.
