SPEAK OUT: Parking Relief At Bethesda Post Office?

Postal patrons can now park in the Adagio garage and have their tickets validated, The Gazette reports.

Patrons of Bethesda's new downtown post office are now able to park in the Adagio garage and have their parking tickets validated, The Gazette reports this week.

The garage is located at the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Bradley Boulevard, beneath the Adagio condominium complex, PetSmart and CVS.

The United States Postal Service has  for opening the new Wisconsin Avenue post office with no dedicated parking. USPS at 7001 Arlington Rd. and 7400 Wisconsin Ave. and consolidated them at the new location at 6900 Wisconsin Ave. early this summer.

Without parking, however, postal patrons were forced to hunt for metered spots or risk being towed from the lot for Mattress Discounters and Verizon next door. USPS has said it was unsuccessful in attempting to sublease parking from the lot.

Is parking in the Adagio lot a convenient solution for postal patrons? Tell us in the comments.

This is ridiculous! Who planned this? My elderly neighbor went to the previous location on Arlington Road and just thought the office was closed for the holiday. She said there was no sign there redirecting. I cannot confirm that, but it is a shame. I did an extensive web search and most of the sites still have the old addresses on them. Completely inadequate for the community's needs and very, very inconvenient and confusing! Had to circle the block, then go into the Mattress Discounter's lot, then the underground parking--what a mess. What are we supposed to do when we have numerous and/or large packages? More importantly, what can we do to get this right?
