Under Construction: Route 17 and Route 754 (Belle Meade Road) Park and Ride Commuter Lot Improvement in Loretto


Cost and schedule ►

This project will improve an existing Park & Ride commuter lot at the intersection of Route 17 and Route 654 (Rectory Road/Belle Meade Road) in Essex County's Loretto area. 

The existing gravel lot will be re-graded, and new pavement, lighting and signs will be added. When work is complete, the improved lot will have a total of 20 spaces for passenger vehicles, and two additional spaces will be accessible parking. 

The lot will close for parking on October 20, 2021, and it is anticipated to remain closed until late November 2021 while construction is underway. New lighting will be installed in January 2022, after the lot has reopened for use. 

This project is being funded through Virginia's SMART SCALE program.
