Heads Up, Deanwood, You've Got a New Place to Park Your Ride

A new parking garage opens in Deanwood.

The new parking garage at the Minnesota Avenue Metrorail Station neatly fits 520 vehicles, so if you live in Ward 7's Deanwood neighborhood, you are a happy commuter about now.

The Minnesota-Benning Road parking garage opens Tuesday at the crack of dawn -- 5 a.m. to be exact. The four-level garage cost a whopping $19 million to build -- but it's worth it.

And it's just the beginning of a lot of spiffy plans to shake up the neighborhood. Already under construciton nearby is a new District of Columbia Government Center that will put two good services at your doorstep: The D.C. Department of Employment Services and the Department of Human Services. Look for the opening next fall.

And you're probably saying "It's about time."

The District Department of Transportation is going to fix up the intersection at Minnesota Avenue and Benning Road in 2012.
