Access to the Courthouse Road Park & Ride commuter lot in Stafford County will change on Wednesday, Oct. 16, as a new side entrance to the lot opens from Wyche Road.  

Following the morning rush hour on Oct. 16, crews will open Florida Rock Drive along Wyche Road.   Florida Rock Drive will serve as the only entrance and exit to the Park & Ride lot until construction is complete in July 2020.

Construction is underway to build a larger lot with additional parking and new amenities as part of the Interstate 95 Exit 140 interchange reconstruction project. As the new lot entrance opens at Florida Rock Drive, the temporary traffic signal at the existing lot entrance on Courthouse Road will be turned off. A temporary traffic signal will be placed in full color operation at the Courthouse Road and Wyche Road intersection.  

When construction is finished, there will be approximately 1,100 parking spaces available at the Exit 140 interchange in two Park & Ride lots. The larger of the two Park & Ride lots will include a dedicated bus, carpool and vanpool pickup and drop-off area to assist with HOV ridesharing. The finished lots will have multiple entrances, sidewalks, shelters, bicycle racks, and permanent lighting structures.
