A parking lot south of Spring Street between Block Avenue and East Avenue will be closed for several weeks while crews work to complete a maintenance project in downtown Fayetteville.

Depending on the construction schedule and progression, unaffected portions of the lot may remain accessible for parking during some nights and weekends, according to a news release. Access to the alley in the middle of the lot will remain unimpeded, but overnight parking is discouraged.

The work includes milling, repair of failed areas, resurfacing, asphalt overlay, and retaining wall replacement. The project is expected to be completed within four to six weeks. Inclement weather or unforeseen conditions could delay or extend the estimated work time.

From the city:

The Off-Street Parking Development District No. 1 entity owns three parking lots in the Downtown Square area, including the Block Avenue lot, and leases them to the city. The city operates the revenue-producing off-street parking lots consistent with other municipal lots. The city equips the lots with parking equipment, provides enforcement, and remits collected net revenues back to the Off-Street Parking Development District.
