Parking in Bethesda 2012

Real Estate Agent with Marcie Sandalow, Compass 301.758.4894



Original Source:  Bethesda Parking 2012 and Beyond...

Bethesda parking, or lack there of, will soon become even more of a challenge.

Starting around January 15, Lots 31 and 31A (a.k.a. the parking lots across from Barnes & Noble) will be closed fur 30 months during construction. In short, 270 surface parking spaces will disappear. The county plans to build a large underground public parking garage on this space (around 940 spaces), and up top will be 88 luxury condominiums (The Darcy) and 162 apartments (The Flats).

Parking, as you can well imagine, will be difficult.  To ease the pain the county plans on shifting some long term parking out of the neighboring public garages and adding 103 short-term spots and 9 ADA spots.  Long terms spaces will be available at the public lot on the corner of Woodmont and Old Georgetown and the Auburn-Del Ray Avenue garage.  The free Bethesda Circulator* will ferry you from downtown Bethesda to the outlying lots. Of course, they’ll be increasing the frequency of service.

It's not going to be a whole lotta fun. Time to tune up my bike.

Good information.  I am in the Bethesda area frequently and parking is enough of a hassle without the construction.
