This morning, Feb. 15, alot of former Potomac Mills folks apparently came over to Lake Ridge and Tacketts. Those are my usual lots. Totally squeezed out as feared. I gather it is going to take awhile for the Dale City/Gemini lot to be actually accepted and used (properly). Well, we are just in Day 2 of the new way of doing things. I'll try to get to LR/Tacketts earlier or go to 123 maybe and just get on the bus for awhile. Hopefully, I don't get run out there also. Today I am illegally parked at Old Hechinger (also full to the brim). Expecting that parking ticket tonight!

The mall management's stance can be gleaned from this:
http://woodbridge-va.patch.com/articles/potomac-mills-commuter-parking-spots-to-reduce-drastically

This morning was terrible. Horner Road: Long LONG LOOOOONG lines of sluggers for every destination. Parking lot still had spots left to park @ ~ 6:50 a.m. though....

This is a disaster.

I pass by PM on way to drop off my child and at 7:25 there was no availibility. There were a few walkers (from where I couldn't tell you) and there were some cars in DC and CC/Rosslyn line. Drivers won't stay waiting for riders who ain't coming. PM can not sustain slugging for DC destinations--we will have to move and soon!

LONG, LONG line of cars waiting, no walkers only people getting dropped off. Surprisingly NO Pentagon line (HUA for them I guess?) Waited for about 20 minutes, decided to go to Dale City/Gemini to pick up for Pentagon instead. NO SLUGS WAITING (and the lot was only about 30% full). Went back to Potomac Mills, waited and finally got a slug at 8:30. Woodbridge Patch says Pot Mills filled up at 6:30. My question is where did everyone go? Anecdotally I'm hearing Tacketts from a co-worker who slugs out there. Is Pot Mills realistic for 14th/18th/Lefant if it's filling up so early?



The new Pentagon line is over in Dale City!(By Comcast/Farmers market area)

Well, the new Pentagon line is now over at Dale City(Where the Farmers Market is on the weekends next to Comcast) However, the line for the Pentagon was slow moving since it's new so I just went to TM and tonight I am going to the Potmac/Horner line and ask for "DaleCity" hope that works??????

The real test will come on Tuesday through Thursday mornings, remember a lot of folks are off on Mondays and Fridays, especially Federal workers! So we will see!

I went to PM today at around 6:45 and found no parking whatsoever and very long lines of cars for Pentagon & Rosslyn. No slugs whatsoever.

I ended up going over to Horner & luckily got a spot there.

@annette the new mall management is not interested in working with the county on this. I attended the meeting last week and that message came across very clear. They didn't even provide the county gov advance notice-they found out when we did- so that ship has sailed. I see a problem here, if 6-7a is the same lines at Pot Mills there's no room for others to park. Hmmm..
