A large portion of the parking lot will be unavailable beginning Friday, July 21, as construction crews move into the next stage of the renovation project. Approximately two-thirds of the parking area on the North Main Street side will be fenced in while infrastructure is installed and the permanent market stalls are constructed. The driveway running in front of the building that is accessed from North Main Street and North Elm Street, including the drive-thru book drop, will remain open during this portion of the project.
The work on the north end of the parking lot nearest Krispy Kreme is approaching completion and will be temporarily paved and striped in the next few weeks. This will allow customers to park there while the rest of the project is underway. Signage will be in place to inform the public when that area is available.
The High Point Farmers Market will continue to operate each Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. during the construction. This Saturday, July 22, it will be moved to the back fence of the lot. Next week it will likely be in the Bank of North Carolina parking lot, but more updates will be provided.
The area of the parking lot nearest to Krispy Kreme is now striped and available for parking. At the moment, the only entrance/exit is from North Main Street, but the North Elm Street entrance should be open and the sidewalk repaired by the middle of next week.
