Coming Soon: Route 1 and Commonwealth Drive Park & Ride Commuter Lot


Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

This project will build a new Park & Ride lot near Route 1 and Commonwealth Drive in Spotsylvania County's Massaponax area.

The project will be bid with a base option to build 462 parking spaces.

Several bid options will also be offered. One construction alternative would expand the 462-space lot by an additional section of 106 parking spaces, for a total of 568 spaces. A second alternative would build a different section of parking that would add 115 spaces to the 462-space lot for a total of 577 spaces. If both alternatives are awarded, the two additional sections of parking could be built for a total of 683 spaces in the Park & Ride lot.    

The final design and number of parking spaces will be determined by the submitted bids.

The parking lot is anticipated to open for use in May 2023.

Bus and ridesharing loading areas will be included, as well as bicycle racks and a bus shelter.

Primary access to the lot will be provided from a proposed entrance on Commonwealth Drive. A second right-in, right-out entrance will provided on Route 1, south of Commonwealth Drive. 


  • Additional parking for ridesharing in the Fredericksburg area and along the I-95 corridor
  • Seeks to reduce congestion by encouraging travelers to carpool, vanpool or use transit
