Proposed Parking Garage Modifications at Grosvenor-Strathmore Metrorail Station
Due to the ongoing public health emergency to slow the spread of coronavirus, the public hearing has been rescheduled to Monday, April 20, 2020, and the public comment period extended to May 1, 2020.
Metro is seeking feedback on proposed modifications to the parking garage addition previously approved at the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metrorail Station.
Metro is in the process of expanding the parking garage at the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metrorail Station, a project previously approved by Metro’s Board of Directors. The garage expansion will replace all parking spaces that will be removed from the surface parking lot due to a joint development project.
Phase 1 of the garage expansion, currently under construction, will replace just over 52% of the lost surface parking. Phase 2 of the garage expansion will replace the remaining parking spaces.
Due to the cost of the Phase 2 garage expansion, the availability of parking at other nearby Metrorail stations, and the expected disruption to the Kiss & Ride and Arts Walk during construction, Metro is considering multiple options:
- Complete the planned construction of the Phase 2 garage expansion.
- Cancel the construction of the Phase 2 garage expansion, reducing the number of on-site parking spaces at Grosvenor-Strathmore Metrorail Station by approximately 194.
- Wait to make a decision about completing or canceling the construction of the Phase 2 garage expansion until after the Phase 1 garage expansion is fully operational in late 2020 and a full parking demand evaluation can be completed.
The public feedback period has ended.
Public feedback will be provided to the WMATA Board of Directors as part of the final decision-making process in late spring 2020.
