The Silver Line of the Washington Metro is a public rapid transit system used by daily commuters in the DC Metro Area with stop stations from Wiehle - Reston East to Largo Town Center. On average, over 15,000 people use the Silver Line for their daily commutes. To offer a shelter for their vehicles while on the Silver Line, large parking garages were needed. Timmons Group provided full civil engineering, surveying, landscape architecture, planning, and permitting services on this County priority project.
The Silver Line Parking Structure consists of three separate parking garages at the two Silver Line Metro Stations in Loudoun County. The parking garages were designed to be placed strategically near Routes 772 and 606. One parking garage is located on the north side of the Route 606 Silver Line Station with a capacity of 1,965 parking spaces, the second is on the south side of the Route 772 Metro Station with 1,540 parking spaces and the final is on the north side of the Route 772 Metro Station with 1,434 spaces available. These parking structures will offer approximately 5,000 parking spaces for the citizens riding on the metro daily.
Specifically for these structures, Timmons Group provided design for transportation access with circulation in and out of the garages, pedestrian circulation, utility design and extension, landscape plantings, and assisted in the architectural review board for Moorefield Station.
