The Maryland State Highway Administration announced it will add 200 parking spaces at the Davidsonville Park and Ride Lot, which is located right off of Route 50 at the Maryland Route 424 exit. The additional spaces would bring the number at the lot to 400 says SHA spokesman Charlie Gischlar.

"As anyone who is a frequent commuter there from Queen Anne's County through the Annapolis area in route to Washington, D.C. knows those spaces are a precious commodity," says Gischlar. "They fill up very quickly. So we are very excited to be able to double the amount of spaces."

The project is scheduled to be completed next summer and will cost $1.7 million. The Maryland Transit Administration has two bus routes that stop at the lot.
