Parking spots won't come at quite the premium for Anne Arundel County commuters.

A busy park and ride lot along Route 50 in Anne Arundel County is about to get bigger.

The 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. Those additional spaces would bring the number at the lot to 400.

"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. They fill up very quickly," says SHA spokesman Charlie Gischlar.  "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.
