To minimize the inconvenience to commuters following a recent labor union strike against three of the region’s suppliers of sand, gravel, and crushed stone (which are essential in the production of asphalt), this short pause in the project will help ensure that asphalt can be available immediately following the removal of the old pavement and avoid the need for temporary striping.
A revised schedule for the asphalt removal and paving will be shared as soon as it is available. This project is still anticipated to be completed this summer.
The Metra parking lots south of W. Main Street continue to remain open for use for daily fee parking and permit holders, with free parking on weekends and weekdays after 11:30am for downtown visitors and employees of downtown businesses.
This summer, the north Metra commuter parking lots will be resurfaced. These construction activities will cause sections of the north commuter parking lot and downtown 6-hour parking lot to be closed at various times. Throughout this project, the commuter parking lots south of W. Main Street will remain open for use for daily fee parking and permit holders. While certain sections of the north parking lots will be open for use, commuters are encouraged to utilize the south lots when possible. Cary's commuter parking lots continue to offer free parking on weekends and weekdays after 11:30am for downtown visitors and employees of downtown businesses.
