The Center Street surface parking lot will be closed on Wednesday, May 15, and Thursday, May 16 for surface treatment maintenance, city officials announced in a press release Tuesday.

The lot is located north of Center Street, south of Meadow Street, and east of Church Avenue and is expected to reopen on Friday, May 17. Inclement weather or unforeseen conditions could delay or extend the estimated work time, officials said.

The alleyway between the lot and the businesses on N. Block Ave. will remain open during the maintenance work.

Parking Manager Justin Clay said Wednesday’s maintenance of the lot will focus on resurfacing, and restriping of parking spaces will be completed at a later date.

The city maintains 10 public parking lots in the downtown Business and Dickson Street Entertainment districts. These lots undergo periodic maintenance such as crack sealing, sealing coating, restriping, patching, and bumper block replacements.
