Board Agrees on $6 Million For Huntington Garage

From today's Fairfax Extra:

The county Board of Supervisors has approved spending up to $6 million to keep construction going on the expansion of the 1,400-space parking garage at the Huntington Metro station.

Metro agreed with a developer to build a mixed-use project on the surface lot on the south side of the station. The developer, Stout and Teague, agreed to replace the 924 spaces with a parking garage. Metro later said it would add about 500 spaces to handle future growth at Huntington.

The cost of the addition was $25.2 million but has grown to $31.2 million. The supervisors were asked to plug the $6 million gap. The money will come from parking fees collected at county Metro stations and from the transit agency's infrastructure fund.
