The City of Biddeford has worked to redesign the Green and Yellow parking lots in the Franklin Street area to make them easier to navigate and to create more free hourly parking availability for visitors. The final step in the project is to pave the lot, and all work is scheduled to be complete by Wednesday, August 14 (weather permitting).
Staff worked to minimize the impacts on parking permit holders and on the surrounding businesses during this project, but parking will be limited in this area for brief periods over the next week. Below is a timeline of the project:
Friday, August 9
Monday, August 12
Tuesday, August 13
Wednesday, August 14
FAQ: Was Federal Street “discontinued” at this week’s City Council meeting to reduce the amount of free on-street parking available in the downtown?
No – Federal Street did not have any on-street parking available. In fact, “discontinuing” this street actually allowed us to create nine new parking spaces as part of this project. In order to make the Green and Yellow Lot area easier to navigate, some entrances to the lot, including the entrance via Federal Street, were closed. By limiting the amount of streets that lead to the lot, we will be able to post clearer directional signage pointing visitors to hourly parking areas.
