City making changes to commuter lot
On Monday, Fredericksburg officials are making three changes to the city-owned commuter parking lot near the Virginia Railway Express station.
This is the lot designated as Lot B on VRE’s Fredericksburg station web page.
Below are the changes provided by the city’s Public Works Department.
- The bus stop for the VRE Feeder Bus Service (VF1 Bus), currently located inside the commuter lot, will be relocated to Caroline Street, near the entrance to the parking lot. Bus stop signage will be relocated.
- All parking on Caroline Street next to the commuter lot (between Frederick Street and the CSX overpass) will become FRED bus parking only. Motorists will no longer be permitted to park on the east side of Caroline Street next to the commuter lot.
- Access to the parking lot off Caroline Street will become an entrance only. Commuters will need to exit the lot via the Sophia Street access.
Traffic pattern signage will be posted at the Caroline Street access to indicate it as an entrance only.
The Sophia Street access will continue to operate as an entrance and exit.
