Mine Road (Stafford) 

wpe3.jpg (37689 bytes)

Location: Stafford, in the commuter lot south of Garrisonville Road (Route 610 ) off Stafford Boulevard. Use exit 143B (Route 610, Garrisonville) off I-95. Lot is near the intersection at Garrisionville and Mine Road, Stafford, VA 22554

Update: Beginning Monday, July 23 and through the duration of the Eads Street construction, two slug stations, 610 Mine Road and 610 Stafford, were temporarily relocated to North Rotary Road to alleviate traffic congestion along Eads Street, South Rotary Road and Fern Street.

Update: New DC line emerging at the Route 610 Lot! The expanded commuter lot has created interest in starting a new line at 610.

MapQuest provides a detailed map and driving directions to the Slug Line location.
Driving Directions 

Description:  Due to the HOT lanes, slugging has increased and now begins around 4:30 a.m. and is generally full by around 6:15. There are currently two lines: one for DC "downtown" destinations and another for the Pentagon/Crystal City. For the return trip in the afternoon from the Pentagon, look for the sign "610- Mine Rd". 

You can park at the Quality Inn and Suites (formerly Holiday Inn), which is adjacent to the Mine Road lot, for $5 a day or $60 a month. From what I have been told, they even throw in coffee! Drivers looking for Pentagon or Crystal City riders should try the 610 Stafford lot (behind McDonalds).

Getting to the Mine Road Lot - you can reach the Mine Road lot either from Mine Road or if you are coming from 610 East, turn right (south) at the Marketplace light.  To reach the New lot in the evening from 95 south, get off at the 610 west exit, but veer left at the split. Then turn left at the Marketplace light and stay in your middle lane to go to the lot. Drop-off and pickup are on the east side of the concrete "island" in the lot. It is one line for everyone (we haven't split up into the DC and VA lines yet, although there is talk of doing that).
