Little by little, the Silver Line creeps towards Dulles as construction of tracks and stations continues. One major addition just getting underway is the Herndon Station parking garage, expected to be completed in 2019.

A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 30. Fairfax County elected officials along with Fairfax County Department of Transportation and Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services will host the ceremony.

The 2,007-space parking facility is designed to assist in reducing congestion on Northern Virginia roadways by creating additional opportunities for ridesharing and the use of public transit. The key features of the project include a pedestrian bridge to the Metrorail Silver Line station currently under construction; vehicular and pedestrian connections to the existing 1,745-space Herndon-Monroe parking garage; and secure bicycle storage facilities.

The $44.5 million project is estimated to be completed in the spring of 2019.
