As part of the Virginia Commonwealth Transportation Board’s (CTB) Six-Year Improvement program, a $38 million grant has been approved to build a parking garage in Woodbridge.
According to New Woodbridge, the funds will be used to build a 1,400 space parking garage at Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center.
The grant funding will also be used to widen Neabsco Mills Road to four lanes from Smoke Court to Route 1.
“The road improvement will include a sidewalk and trail, and will reduce traffic congestion near the proposed Potomac National baseball stadium,” stated New Woodbridge’s website.
The parking garage will provide free commuter parking for people that slug, carpool, or vanpool, and in the evenings would be paid parking for individuals coming to the shopping center for a Potomac Nationals game, if the stadium project moves forward.
“These fees will pay for the operations and maintenance of the garage, which will be built on land given to Prince William County by JBG Companies, the owner of Potomac Town Center,” stated New Woodbridge’s website.
