Metro asks riders for input on proposed modifications to the expansion of the Grosvenor-Strathmore parking garage

Metro is proposing modifications to a planned garage expansion that would impact customer parking at the Grosvenor-Strathmore Station. The options include moving forward with a planned addition, canceling future construction or delaying the decision until an evaluation is completed.

The garage expansion is part of a joint development at Grosvenor-Strathmore that would eliminate a surface parking lot. Construction is underway on Phase 1 to replace approximately 52 percent of the surface parking. The project, approved by the Metro Board of Directors, would replace the remaining spaces during Phase 2 of the garage expansion.

Due to the cost of the Phase 2 addition, 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 Station by approximately 194 spaces.
  • 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 completed.

Metro encourages customers to provide feedback by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 9, 2020:

Let the parking spaces go. The entire development is overly ambitious. People should not drive to the Metro.

As a 50 year resident of the area and commuter since the station opened, I hate the idea of losing more spaces – there are many of us who can’t easily get to the Grosvenor station via Ride On bus – especially during off hours. It’s hard enough to find parking there as it is – losing close to 200 spaces (more actually, because construction workers always manage to take up a good number) would be a hardship – and certainly a pain during Strathmore events.
