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

The lot will have 683 parking spaces. Within the total parking spaces, the lot will provide 14 accessible parking spaces, 10 motorcycle parking spaces, and a bicycle rack.

To support multimodal transportation and promote bicycle and pedestrian travel to the commuter lot, a 10-foot-wide shared use path will be built along Route 1, and sidewalk will be built along Commonwealth Drive.

When parking opens for use in May 2023, the lot will provide a dedicated area for transit arrivals and departures with a passenger shelter.

Carpools and vanpools will have a separate pickup and dropoff lane. The lane is designed to also accommodate slugging, which is an informal, instant carpooling practice where three or more people rideshare to use high-occupancy road facilities.

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

Beginning the week of Oct. 18, 2021, travelers on Route 1 should be alert for the placement of work zone barrier along the shoulder. 


  • 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
