Harris Parking Lot is closed for repairs

BRATTLEBORO — A significant project to improve the Gibson-Aiken Center and Harris parking lots has begun.

The scope of the project includes replacing all pavement, new sidewalks and curbing, improved drainage, and fresh pavement markings.

The public should expect these lots to be closed for public parking throughout the majority of the estimated four-week project.

A temporary access ramp will be built from the parking lot behind Fairpoint Communications in order to maintain pedestrian access to the Senior Center at the Gibson-Aiken Center.

During construction, regular permit holders in the Harris Lot will have their parking permits honored in the High-Grove and Spring Street lots and the nonreserved section of the Brattleboro Transportation Center.

The reserved section is for reserved permit holders only, and is marked and located on the third floor of the Transportation Center, just to the right as you enter from Elliot Street.

The contractor's hours of operation are permitted as follows: Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Work began in the Gibson-Aiken Center lot on Sept. 15, and in the Harris Lot on Sept. 18. Both parking lots are expected to re-open to vehicular traffic on or about Oct. 9. These dates are subject to change by weather and other factors.

Questions or concerns may be directed to Assistant Town Manager Patrick Moreland at 802-251-8101.
