Loudoun County will host a dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony for Phase 1 of the new Dulles Town Center Park & Ride lot at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday. One-hundred spaces of a planned 300-space lot have been completed next to the Dulles Town Center mall.
The lot is being constructed by the mall’s developer, Lerner, through an in-kind proffer at a cost of $1.7 million. The schedule for the remaining proffered 200 parking spaces is currently under review with the developer.
The Park and Ride will serve Loudoun County Transit’s Local Bus Service Route 87X to and from the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station on the Silver Line. It also will serve Route 83, the Pacific Connector, and Route 84, the Atlantic Connector. These buses travel to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station, with stops along Pacific and Atlantic avenues, respectively.
Members of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors and other county officials are scheduled to attend the dedication and ribbon-cutting.
The Dulles Town Center Park and Ride is at the intersection of Atlantic Boulevard and Dulles Center Boulevard, and there’s a traffic signal at the location.
If you are using GPS, enter 21000 Atlantic Boulevard, Sterling, VA, which is the address of the building just north of the Park and Ride along Atlantic Boulevard. Businesses in that building include Carpathia, Harris Information Technology and the Art Institute.
