9/9/2022 - News Release - 5th Street Parking Lot Construction Begins

5th STREET PARKING LOT CONSTRUCTION BEGINS

On Monday, September 12th, Vogts Parga Construction of Newton will begin replacing the old parking lots west of 5th Street between Iron Avenue and Ash Street.

During construction the lots will be closed to all traffic, but the alley to the west will continue to be open to pedestrian traffic.  The work will occur much like four years ago when Vogts Parga replaced the connecting lot to the north. Sufficient parking to meet demand currently exists nearby, primarily south of the Downtown Fieldhouse, as shown on the attached.  The work is expected to last through the end of October.

The $470,000 project is being funded by New Market Tax Credits.
