When the western half of the lot opens, HOV carpooling users will have a new carpool/slugging pickup and dropoff area.
Message boards and signs will direct High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) traffic to a new platform area for pickup and dropoff.
When the western half of the lot opens, 650 parking spaces will be available for public use during the final phase of construction.
When construction is complete this fall, the lot will have a total of 1,052 parking spaces.
Spotsylvania Farmers Market
The Spotsylvania Farmers Market will remain open during all phases of construction. Market customers should park in the new, expanded section of the Gordon Road lot and walk to the market area.
On Friday evenings, vanpool drivers should park in the new parking area, as far to the north as possible. This will allow space for the Spotsylvania Farmers Market to operate on Saturdays, and for customers to have parking available close to the market.
