My biggest problem with the Horner lot is just it's location. It's great for dropping people off on the way home. I can jump right back on 95 and zip to the Dale City exit within a minute or two (I live right off 95). But getting to the lot in the mornings is a pain. Dale Blvd. to PW Parkway on 95N is a joke. That can take 20 minutes or more some days. The best way I found this morning was Dale Blvd. to Smoketown to PWP. But that still adds 5-10 minutes just to get to the lot.

Ah well, I'm just nitpicking. It could be worse.

JJMahoney,
I assume you use Gideon to go from Dale Blvd to Smoketown/Opitz. You could also try turning right from Gideon onto Opitz, then left on Telegraph to PWP. I think there are fewer lights, though they may be longer lights, so your way could be just as fast. [:)]

Yeah, I tried that the first time. The light at Telegraph and the PWP was backed up really bad (took about 10-15 minutes to get through it). The other way seemed faster. But today there was zero traffic, so I didn't even need slugs. :)

They really screwed up that light when it was changed just a while back. Before, it was very difficult if you wanted to turn left, but now it's worse than ever no matter which way you're going from Telegraph.

I usually come to Horner via Route 1 and Opitz, and I have found that turning left off of Telegraph just past Toys R Us, then going down by IKEA and turning left at the old Incredible Universe, is much faster than going all the way to Prince William on Telegraph.

I despise parking at Horner and have parked at Potomac for years. Too this day Horner Road has too many vandalism problems. But I do park there from time to time and it is a time saver for sure. But Potomac Mills is only another 5 minutes away so I prefer to park there. I've been very successful getting rides up until 8:15.
