Springfield Plaza Park & Ride Losing Spaces

Commuters will lose 75 spaces at the Springfield Plaza as of Monday, because the property owner needs more room for plaza customers, the Fairfax County Department of Transportation says.

Passengers on Fairfax Connector Routes 331, 332, and Metrobus Route 18E (Springfield Line) will still be able to park and use the buses at this location, but parking may fill up more quickly because there are fewer spaces available. And be aware of the posted parking restrictions, since cars can be towed for parking in the spaces for plaza customers.

Here are some alternative park & rides:
* Springfield United Methodist Church, 6501 Spring Rd., Springfield: 56 spaces, served by Fairfax Connector Routes 310, 321, 322, 331, 332 and Metrobus Routes 18E,G,H,J,P on Old Keene Mill Road.
* Backlick North Park and Ride, 6831 Backlick Rd., Springfield: 279 spaces, served by Fairfax Connector Routes 310, 331, 332.
* American Legion, 6500 Amherst Ave., Springfield: 100 spaces, served by Fairfax Connector Routes 310, 321, 322, 331, 332 and Metrobus Routes 18G, H, J, P.
* Gambrill Road Park and Ride, 7321 Gambrill Rd., Springfield: 223 spaces, served by Fairfax Connector Route 305 and Metrobus Route 18R.

The park and rides offer free parking. The Department of Transportation has more information about the park and ride system on this page. Or call 703-324-1100, TTY 711.

I would think that the property owners would see the commuter parkers as a source of extra revenue for their vendors. I certainly do - when I get there in the evening, I buy my groceries at Giants, get some frozen yogurt from Iceberry, etc. Apparently, they don't see that.

There are two property owners in that area: (1) Rappaport Companies - on the Giant's (West) Side and (2) A.J. Dwoskin & Associates, Inc.- on the Kmart (North and East) side:

A.J. Dwoskin & Associates, Inc.
9302 Lee Highway, Suite 300

Rappaport Companies-Springfield Plaza
