A ramp from the lot offers direct access to the new Express Lanes to and from the east.

- Three bus bays with covered waiting areas and real-time bus service information.
- Designated locations with covered waiting areas for carpool and vanpool, as well as a kiss-and-ride area.

What Neighbors Can Expect

- Lighting of the construction area during the nighttime hours will be directed to minimize light pollution for nearby residents.
- Every effort will be made to communicate major traffic switches or nighttime work through project emails and the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway website.
What Drivers Can Expect
- Construction-related detours and stoppages may be in place periodically as crews continue to use the parking lot for construction support.
- Drivers should slow down, stay focused, and be alert for construction crews.
