Parking lot repairs ongoing in Brattleboro
BRATTLEBORO — A significant project to improve the Gibson Aiken and Harris parking lots is about to get underway.
The scope of the project includes replacing all pavement, installing new sidewalks and curbing, improved drainage and fresh paint. The public should expect these lots to be closed for public parking throughout the majority of the estimated four-week project.
A temporary access ramp will be built from the parking lot behind Fairpoint Communications to maintain pedestrian access to the Senior Center at the Gibson Aiken Center.
During construction, regular permit holders in the Harris Lot will have their parking permits honored in the lots at High Grove, Spring Street and the non-reserved section of the Brattleboro Transportation Center.
The reserved section is for reserved permit holders only and is marked and located on the third floor, just to the right of the entrance from Elliot Street.
Work will begin in the Gibson Aiken Center Parking Lot today. Expect the entire lot to be closed to vehicular traffic for an estimated four weeks.
Work will begin in the Harris Parking Lot on Monday.
Expect the entire lot to be closed to vehicular traffic for an estimated three weeks. Both parking lots are expected to reopen to vehicular traffic on or about Oct. 9.
The public can expect the east side of the Harmony Parking Lot to reopen to vehicular traffic, with the exception of the alley to Elliot Street, and the west side to remain open to vehicular traffic today.
The Harmony Parking Lot is expected to be open for vehicular traffic during the weekend.
The entire Harmony Parking Lot, both the east and the west sides, will be closed to all vehicular traffic beginning Monday, continuing through Wednesday.
The contractor's hours of operation are permitted as follows: Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and, Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
These dates are subject to change by weather and other factors. For more information, contact Assistant Town Manager Patrick Moreland at 802-251-8101.
