Auburn, Ala. - The City of Auburn temporary parking lot located on Gay Street adjacent to the Auburn Municipal Parking Deck will close for construction beginning Monday, May 13. The closure will include the Gay Street entrance to the Auburn Municipal Parking Deck. The parking deck will remain open and will still be accessible from Tichenor Avenue.
Construction on the lot will begin Phase 1 of the Downtown and Parking Improvement Plan. Downtown parking has been identified as a citizen priority in the City's Annual Citizen Survey, and downtown parking improvements were approved by Auburn citizens in the January 2012 Special Five Mill Tax Fund Referendum.
Approximately 75 parking spaces will be added to downtown Auburn as a result of this project. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of August 2013.
