Moran's BRAC-133 parking plan trimmed

By Washington Post Editors

Christy Goodman reports on the Dr. Gridlock blog that the Secretary of the Army is required to submit transportation plans and identify funding for traffic improvements surrounding the new Washington Headquarters Service building at Mark Center in Alexandria.

The legislation authored by Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.) capping parking to 1,000 spaces at the new building complex off Interstate 395 and Seminary Road until the various road improvements were completed was trimmed down in the Defense Reauthorization Act. The House passed the pared-down bill Friday.

Senators "took everything out that they considered an earmark," Moran said Tuesday. "The compromise puts the onus on the Pentagon to show how they are going to pay for the infrastructure, as well as identifying what infrastructure needs to be in place before the move takes place."

The new building is part of the Base Realignment and Closure process, known as BRAC-133. Some 6,400 federal employees are scheduled to move in September 2011.
