Construction began on July 20 to extend Dixon Avenue through the Bonifant-Dixon Parking Garage (Public Parking Garage 55) in Silver Spring. The Bonifant Avenue entrance to the garage will be closed for about 14 months.
Parkers are encouraged instead to use the Dixon Avenue entrance to Garage 5, which is bounded by Dixon, Ramsey and Bonifant avenues. The garage has 1,240 public parking spaces. Metro Kiss-and-Ride spaces are located on the G Level of Garage 5.
