FREDERICKSBURG – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has opened 500 new parking spaces in the Gordon Road Park & Ride lot.
The lot is located at the intersection of Route 3 and Gordon Road in Spotsylvania County. Lot users now have access to a total of 1,052 parking spaces.
Construction to expand the Park & Ride commuter lot began in fall 2014 and will be completed in December 2015. Final tasks include the installation of benches and signs. Landscaping will occur in November, when temperatures are cooler.

• A second entrance to the lot accessible from Harrison Road
