Telegraph Road Commuter Lot Ribbon Cutting Thursday
The $7.2 million project will ceremonially open phase one on Thursday.
Thursday, the Prince William Board of County Supervisors will celebrate phase one of the Telegraph Road commuter park and ride lot with a ribbon cutting.
The official cutting will happen at 11 a.m. at in 13254 Telegraph Rd.
Last February, Virginia Secretary of Transportation Sean T. Connaughton announced that the additional commuter parking lot would be opening in Woodbridge to accomodate for the loss of some 700 parking spaces at the Potomac Mills commuter lot.
The lot was slated to cost $7.2 million, as projected by the Virginia Department of Transportation.
The Telegraph Road lot is a 600-parking space park-and-ride lot.
According to Prince William County Transportation Director Tom Blaser, the commuter lot was open but unused Tuesday morning.
"We are installing additional signage today," Blaser wrote in an email. "I'm surprised nobody used it but as we have learned commuting patterns change very slowly."
