The new Pennington Parking Garage at the Loudoun County Courts Complex in Leesburg is scheduled to open Thursday, Aug. 1, the county announced Tuesday.
At the same time, the surface Pennington Lot next to the garage will close temporarily for renovations. The new garage has 717 spaces on four levels, although the fourth level of the garage will remain closed.
Access to the garage will be the same as the existing access to the Pennington Lot from Church Street NE in Leesburg. The garage has a single entry and exit point for vehicles; however, all pedestrians entering and exiting the garage must follow a new pedestrian path that extends from the southeast corner of the garage structure to North Street NE. There will be no pedestrian access to the garage from Church Street.
Renovations to the Pennington surface lot and work on the extension of Church Street are expected to take about two months.
The parking improvements are part of an expansion of the Loudoun County courts complex, which includes the construction of a new 92,000-square-foot courthouse, renovation of the existing courthouse and historic Valley Bank and improved pedestrian access to the courts buildings.
