Officials have plans to build two new restaurants at Potomac Mills Mall, and they'll close more than 700 of the 1,000 spaces in the mall's commuter lot to do it.

Jason Grant with Prince William County says there are other options for sluggers and bus riders.

"We have more spaces available than what Potomac Mills is reclaiming. The trouble is, those spots are located in different lots. The most available is the Route 123 and I-95 commuter lot, which is off of Annapolis way," Grant says.

Prince William County offers more than a dozen official commuter lots.
