Leeland Station VRE parking expansion wrapping up

September 8, 2012 12:10 am


Parking will be restricted this weekend at the Virginia Railway Express Leeland Station lot in Stafford.

It's for good reason--the contractor is putting on the finishing touches for the expansion project.

The new section, with 196 spaces, should be opened by Sept. 19, according to VRE.

This weekend workers will be painting lines on the lot's paved area, so anyone planning to park in the lot Saturday or Sunday can use only the gravel area.

The $4.4 million project included the installation of new lights in the parking area --new and existing--as well as new sidewalks and steps leading to the train platform.
