Baltimore VA Medical Center Parking Garage Construction Project Update
Have you heard about the Baltimore VA Medical Center (VAMC) parking garage construction project? Where will you park? Don't worry! Safe and convenient parking arrangements have been made to accommodate your needs.
Phase 1 of the construction began in the parking garage at the Baltimore VAMC in January 2017 with the closing of level P3 to replace the ramps and drive lanes due to deteriorating concrete and road surfaces. The construction, which is being completed in three phases, is necessary to ensure a safe environment.
On February 27th, levels P2 and P3 in the Baltimore VAMC garage were closed and parking was moved to the Metro West parking garage to prepare for Phases 2 of the garage construction project.
During Phase 2, patients visiting the Baltimore VAMC have the following options for parking:
The Metro West garage is the former site of the Social Security Administration and is just two blocks away at 610 W. Saratoga St. (see directions to the Metro West garage below).
How will you get to the Baltimore VAMC from the Metro West garage?
A handicap accessible shuttle service will make regular pickups and drop-offs inside the Metro West garage and the breezeway of the Baltimore VAMC. We know your time is valuable, so if you choose to park at the Metro West garage, please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled clinic appointment to avoid being late. The garage has onsite parking attendants and security coverage.
Phase 3 of the project, which will begin April 10th, will involve closing the entire Baltimore VAMC garage until the completion of construction. All patients will park at the Metro West garage during phase 3 of the project. The valet parking service will be available for patient use at the Metro West garage during this phase of the project, and the handicap accessible shuttle service will continue to run between the Metro West garage and the breezeway of the Baltimore VAMC. The project is scheduled to be finished in May 2017.
We apologize for any inconveniences the construction may cause you as we work to maintain a safe environment for patients, employees, volunteers and visitors. Thank you for your cooperation!
