Attention Slugs! Your Input is Needed!

There are plans to construct a new commuter garage at the current Old Keene Mill Park-and-Ride site (7039 Old Keene Mill Rd) next to Sunoco and Fairfax County DOT wants slug input!! This is great news for DOT to ask for our input prior to construction.

A meeting will be held at 7 pm on November 8, 2017 at the Key Middle School in the cafeteria, so Slugs, let your voice be heard!!

Basically DOT is trying to collect contact information for members of the slugging community who utilize this site or any of the adjacent park-and-ride lots in an attempt to gather their input and feedback.  The adjacent park-and-ride lots include:
- Springfield United Methodist Church (6501 Spring Rd)
- American Legion (6520 Amherst Ave)
- Springfield Plaza (6400 Springfield Plaza) aka Bob's. 

I would like to encourage as many slugs as possible to either attend the meeting and provide input from the "slugging" perspective, or post comments/input on this topic thread.

Key Middle School in Springfield is located at: 6402 Franconia Rd, Springfield, VA 22150

Here is the map for driving directions: https://goo.gl/maps/Te2gVfBMtCp


Location: Just west of I-95 near the intersection of Old Keene Mill Road and Bland Street in Springfield, VA near the Springfield Town Center (aka Springfield Mall). The line itself in the morning moved next to Sunoco Gas station across Kmart parking lot. For DC slugger cars enter from Keene Mill Road and go around the loop.

Description:This location has undergone the test of time.  Although the construction of the "Mixing Bowl" disrupted this line for a short time, it is currently in full operation.  Because of some of the changes there are a few names to describe this location (Bob's, Springfield Plaza, Long John Silvers, Chi Chi's).  All names are actually the same slug line. There are two slug lines that operate out of the commuter lot. Line #1: L’Enfant Plaza and 14th street. Line #2: 18th Street locations (sometimes called Memorial Bridge).
