Herndon Monroe Kiss and Ride/Credit: FCDOTThe Kiss & Ride Lot at Herndon-Monroe Park & Ride will be moving to a new temporary location, effective Monday.

Construction activity for Metro’s Silver Line phase 2 is expected to begin this weekend.

Crews will be clearing the area needed for the installation of the water and sewer utilities that will serve the future Herndon Metro Station now under construction in the median of the Dulles Toll Road/Airport Road.

A temporary Kiss & Ride lot will be will be located in the surface lot directly across from the Park & Ride facility’s garage entrance. Ten parking spaces have been reserved for Kiss & Ride Drop-Off.  Vehicles entering the temporary Kiss & Ride Lot will turn right and follow a counter-clockwise pattern through the lot.

Here is what you need to know:

To access the Temporary Kiss & Ride Lot from Sunrise Valley Drive take the first right into the surface parking lot and bear right.  Follow the circulation pattern to the reserved parking spaces or continue around the lot to the Kiss & Ride Drop-Off curb.

To access the Temporary Kiss & Ride Lot from the Eastbound Dulles Toll Road, take Exit No. 11 and stay to the right.  Follow the directional signage to the Temporary Kiss & Ride Lot.

To return to Dulles Toll Road eastbound from Temporary Park & Ride Lot, turn right out of the lot and turn left at the intersection.  Follow the roadway around to the Dulles Toll Road Toll Booth.

Phase 2 of the Silver Line, including stations at Reston Town Center, Herndon, Route 28, Dulles International Airport and Ashburn, is expected to open in early 2019.

    So the Silver line extension is now expected to be completed in 2019? We’re in 2015 now, the original date (already pushed back b/c the first stretch was delayed) was for 2018. And already they’re delaying this. How long does it take to lay a few miles of track in the middle of a median? Seriously. 4 years?

    Come on, you know the contractors always drag these things out. Should have let Trump build it.

    That’s going to be tough for the impromptu slug line.

    So anyone coming off the toll road will now need to pay a toll to get back on, whereas it was free before to access the K&R lot and get directly back on the eastbound toll road. Progress!

    Looks like that “early 2019” has been postponed to “early 2020” while the project still remains on schedule and on budget. http://wtop.com/sprawl-crawl/2015/12/silver-line-extension-construction-rolling-along/
