Workers are nearing completion of a six-level parking garage at the West Falls Church Metro station. The garage will nearly double the spaces available at the station, which has a high demand for additional commuter parking.
When the $13 million garage is completed early next year, the 950 new spaces will bring the capacity at West Falls Church to 2,012 spaces. Parking will be $3.75 on weekdays, payable with a SmarTrip card only.
The structure is located on the existing surface parking lot, which is on the south side of Interstate 66 near the station pedestrian bridge entrance. The garage was funded by the state.
During construction, commuters have lost about 360 spaces, but additional parking has been available at two temporary, permit-only satellite lots served by shuttle buses.
