The expansion of the Court Street parking lot in downtown Auburn gets underway next week.
City Clerk Chuck Mason said on Friday’s Finger Lakes Morning News the lot will remain open for most of the period when the work to double the size of the parking lot and improve storm water drainage is underway.
Meanwhile, the paving of Genessee Street from North and South Streets to James Street is complete, with just some touch up work remaining.
While the work on the parking lot is underway parking in the downtown garage will be free.
Mason said they’ve added a few more parking spots for the reverse angle parking that is now a permanent fixture on Genesee Street.
