Herndon-Monroe Commuter Garage Access Through Dulles Toll Road ONLY November 10-26, 2017
- Commuters who wish to use the existing Herndon-Monroe garage during this time will need to enter and exit the facility via the Dulles Toll Road (Rt. 267). This detour will require drivers to pay a $1.00 toll upon exiting the garage with an E-Z Pass or exact change.
- Commuters can alternatively consider using the Reston South Park and Ride located at the intersection of Reston Parkway and Fox Mill Road (parking is free but limited); or the commuter parking garage located at the Wiehle-Reston East Metrorail Station (parking costs $4.95 per day, payable by SmartTrip card, or credit and debit card ONLY.)
Fairfax Connector Passengers Should Expect Delays, Detours

- Stop #3495 at Colt Brook Drive

Herndon Station Commuter Garage Project
The new 2,007-space commuter parking facility currently under construction is designed to assist in reducing congestion on Northern Virginia roadways by creating additional opportunities for ridesharing and the use of public transit. The garage is owned and operated by Fairfax County.
The key features of the project include:
- A pedestrian bridge to the Metrorail Silver Line station currently under construction;
- Vehicular and pedestrian connections to the existing 1,745-space Herndon-Monroe parking garage; and
- Secure bicycle storage facilities.
The $44.5 million project is estimated to be completed in the spring of 2019.
