DIRECTIONS TO DOCS IN PROGRESS HEADQUARTERS

Docs In Progress is in downtown Silver Spring, MD. We are in an office building located at the corner of Wayne Avenue and Cedar Lane (behind the St Michael the Archangel Catholic Church which is behind the Whole Foods parking lot). We are an easy walk from Veteran's Plaza (the ice rink), the Silver Spring Library, the Silver Spring Metro station, and parking options.

From the Silver Spring Metro, you can walk up Colesville and then up Wayne Avenue for the shortest and most direct route or stop on Ellsworth or other nearby streets if you are planning to eat first. If you prefer an alternative to the 12 minute walk from the Metro, check out the free RideOn VanGo 28 Circulator Shuttle. Ask the driver to let you off at the stop closest to Wayne and Fenton. From there, we are only a block up Wayne.

If you are driving, there is limited visitor parking in the lot behind our building (enter from Cedar). Please do NOT park in any spots which say Employee Parking. If the lot is full, the nearest parking garages are the Wayne Avenue Garage or the Town Square Garage (enter from Ellsworth or Roeder). They are each noted on the map below with a P. On weekdays, parking is $1 per hour until 9 pm if you enter the garage before 7 pm. If you enter the garage after 7 pm, it is free. Parking is free on weekends. Both garages are open 24/7. Please DO NOT park in the Whole Foods Parking Lot since they have stringent towing enforcement.

Once in the office building, take the elevator down to the G level and you will find us in Suite G-100. If you need to enter the building with a ramp, you can do so from the back of the building where the parking area is.

If you arrive at our building after 7:30 pm or are coming for a Sunday program, you may find the door at Wayne Avenue is locked. Please walk around the back of the building and use the entry pad to call down to our office to be buzzed into the building.
