WARRENTON PARK AND RIDE EXPANSION BEGINS JUNE 28
Project will expand existing parking lot to provide about 360 spaces
CULPEPER — Commuters using the Warrenton Park and Ride Lot at the intersection of Route 15/29 (Lee Highway) and Route 605 (Colonial Road) in Fauquier County should be alert for parking restrictions when the Warrenton Park and Ride expansion project begins next week.
On June 28, VDOT will close the entire section of parking spaces near Route 605 and a small portion of spaces near the bus shelter. The remainder of the lot will be open for parking. The spaces scheduled to be closed will be clearly marked and any vehicles remaining in the spaces marked for closure will be towed. The spaces will reopen by July 30, 2019.
VDOT staff will soon place project information letters on vehicles parked in the lot to inform owners about the upcoming work. About 12 hours before towing begins, a tow warning notice will be placed on all vehicles parked in the spaces scheduled to be closed.
Additional parking restrictions will be announced and the same process will be used for notifying commuters.
Under a $589,713 construction contract, VDOT contractor Tavares Concrete Co, Inc. of Lorton will increase the capacity of the park and ride lot from 212 parking spaces to about 360 parking spaces. Additionally, the project will improve lighting, provide bike racks, and add sidewalk along the edge of the parking lot near Route 605. The project will be complete by Nov. 8, 2019. Alternate park and ride locations are available on VDOT’s interactive park and ride map. For more information, visit: www.virginiadot.org/projects/culpeper/warrentonparkandride.asp.
