Week in Herndon: Garage Entrance Closure to Affect Commuters Nov. 10-26

Due to construction of the new Fairfax County commuter parking garage at the future Metrorail Silver Line’s Herndon Station site, the access road from Sunrise Valley Drive to the Herndon-Monroe park and ride facility will be closed starting Friday. Nov. 10, through Sunday, Nov. 26, 2017.

  • Commuters who wish to use the existing Herndon-Monroe garage during this time will need to enter and exit the facility via the Dulles Toll Road (Rt. 267). This detour will require drivers to pay a $1 toll upon exiting the garage with an E-Z Pass or exact change.

  • Commuters can alternatively consider using the Reston South Park and Ride located at the intersection of Reston Parkway and Fox Mill Road (parking is free but limited); or the commuter parking garage located at the Wiehle-Reston East Metrorail Station (parking costs $4.95 per day, payable by SmartTrip card, or credit and debit card only.)

Due to the construction activities, Fairfax Connector passengers using routes that serve the Herndon-Monroe Park and Ride facility should expect significant delays. Also, the following bus stops on Sunrise Valley Drive - served by Routes 924, 926, 927, 937, 950, 951 and 551 - will be missed:

  • Stop #3495 at Colt Brook Drive

  • Stop #3541 at Milburn Lane

  • Stop #3566 at Thunder Chase Drive

Commuters usually using the stops not served should board buses at the Herndon-Monroe Park and Ride facility. Pedestrians can access the bus bays by entering through the garage.

For more information on the service impacts of the construction project, commuters can:

  • Call 703-339-7200, TTY 703-339-1608 (Monday - Friday, 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Saturday - Sunday, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.)
