SPRINGFIELD, VA-There is parking aplenty at the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s Franconia-Springfield Metrorail station now that the transportation organization has wrapped up construction of a new facility capable of accommodating 1,000 vehicles. Both the state of Virginia and Fairfax County pitched in to realize the endeavor by contributing $13 million and $2.8 million, respectively, to the $15.8 million project. Washington, DC’s Donohoe Construction Co. and its design/build team built the six-level aboveground structure.

The official opening of the parking garage, which comes 14 months after its groundbreaking, adds 25% more parking space to the original 4,100 parking space station. “With the addition of 1,000 parking spaces at Franconia-Springfield, this provides significant benefits to our customers who use the station every day, and it will help alleviate traffic congestion in the Franconia area,” says Metro Board of Directors member Katherine K. Hanley.
