City parking lots in the downtown area will be resealed this weekend, June 1 and June 2, weather permitting. Lots will close at 5 p.m. Friday, May 31 and reopen early Monday, June 3. Work will be done on parking lots located on the east side of 500 and 600 blocks of Joplin Avenue, along with the lot on the 600 block of Virginia Avenue. Businesses in the area will remain open and accessible during this closure.
The lots will be barricaded to restrict access and citizens should park along the streets, as allowed, or in the Memorial Hall lot. Crews have notified businesses and residents within the immediate area of the lots.
Springfield Striping & Sealing, the general contractor for the City’s 2019 Parking Lot and Trail Sealing Project, will reopen the lots the morning of Monday, June 3, weather permitting.
Work for the project is funded through the Transportation Sales Tax Fund.
