Expressway Parking Deck
Dear Valued Customer:
Thank you for your patronage as a monthly parking customer at the Expressway Parking Deck. This letter is to inform you that within the next 45 to 60 days, the Richmond Metropolitan Authority (RMA) will no longer manage parking affiliated with this deck.
The Expressway Parking Deck was built in 1992 by the RMA on behalf of the City of Richmond to accommodate the increased demands for parking in the downtown area. RMA has owned and operated the facility on behalf of the City for more than 20 years. Earlier this calendar year, it was agreed that the RMA would transfer the parking deck to the City of Richmond, per the original construction agreement.
We anticipate that the City will begin parking management responsibilities after the facility transfer has been completed around the end of December 2013.
The RMA will forward the City’s designated parking contractor’s contact information and additional details to you within the next few weeks. The correspondence will include instructions on how to sign up for monthly parking with the new management company, as well as information on your deposit. Please complete the enclosed form with your most recent contact information and drop off at the Deck office no later than November 15, 2013.
It has been a pleasure to serve you at the Expressway Parking Deck. We appreciate your patronage. For questions or concerns, please contact me at (804) 523-3341.

Expressway Parking Deck construction began on May 8, 1990. The facility opened on February 14, 1992.
The deck provides 1,000 parking spaces to the downtown Richmond financial district. The deck has nine levels; three of them underground.
Bordered by 9th, 10th, Byrd and Canal Streets, the deck is located, in part, over a depressed section of the westbound lanes of the Downtown Expressway. It is accessible from the expressway and I-95.
The Expressway Parking Deck is open for transient parking Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monthly parkers have access cards which allow them to enter or leave the deck at any time.
In spring 1993 the Expressway Parking Deck received the Merit Award for Excellence in Parking Design and Program Innovation from the Institutional and Municipal Parking Congress.
