In January 2017, phase 1 of a major construction project started in the parking garage at the Baltimore VA Medical Center (VAMC) that is having an impact on parking and traffic flow.  The project involves replacing the ramps and drive lanes in the garage as a result of deteriorating concrete and road surfaces.  This construction, which will be completed in three phases, is necessary to ensure a safe environment.  Each phase will take approximately 6 weeks to complete.

Currently, levels P2 and P3 in the Baltimore VAMC garage are closed as part of Phase 2 of the garage construction project.  During Phase 2, patients visiting the Baltimore VAMC will have the following options for parking:

  1. Use the valet service to park on P1 of the Baltimore VAMC garage
  2. Drive to the Metro West garage to self-park (directions listed below)

UPDATE

Beginning Monday, April 10, 2017, the parking garage at the Baltimore VAMC will be closed to prepare for Phase 3 of the garage construction project.  Effective April 10th and for the remainder of the project, patients visiting the Baltimore VAMC will park at the Metro West garage.

The parking garage construction project is scheduled to be completed by the end of May 2017.

The Metro West garage is the former site of the Social Security Administration and is just two blocks from the Baltimore VAMC at 610 W. Saratoga Street. We have made arrangements with Metro West to provide safe and convenient parking during the construction project.  The garage, which is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, has onsite VA parking attendants and security coverage.  Additionally, a fleet of handicap accessible shuttle buses will transport patients, employees and volunteers between the inside of the Metro West garage and the breezeway of the Baltimore VAMC, with regular pickups and drop-offs at both locations.   During Phase 3, the free valet service will be available for patient use at the Metro West garage. 

Patients are encouraged to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled clinic appointment  when parking at the Metro West garage to avoid being late or missing their appointment due to the increased travel times between the two facilities.

We will be providing ongoing updates to keep patients, employees and volunteers informed throughout the process.  We apologize for any inconvenience the construction may cause you, but the repair and maintenance of the garage is vital to maintain a safe environment.

Thank you for your support and cooperation!
