Tuesday was the day reverse angle parking became the rule in downtown Auburn.
Work crews have completed the paving and striping, and the changeover is now official.
Auburn Downtown BID Executive Director Stephanie DeVito had a front row seat from the BID office.
DeVito said on Wednesday’s Finger Lakes Morning News there is the parking garage and other options for those who are apprehensive about backing in to a parking spot.
The new parking procedure has been mandated by the State Department of Transportation as part of the Genesee Street reconstruction project due to the history of high accident rates on Genesee Street in the downtown area.
The City of Auburn has produced a video which explains the parking procedure.
