*Saturday traffic advisory: We just wanted to give you a “heads-up” on some road closures that will be taking place this Saturday, August 25, due to construction and area events. Park Street, west of the Market, will be closed from Vine Street (but you can come from the west into the market lot on Vine) north to Goodale for an event called the Tap and Run. High Street will be closed at Vine, and south to Nationwide (but you should be able to turn east onto Vine into our lot as well). This is due to the installation of the walkway connecting the new Hotel to the Convention Center. If you are coming from the south or west, use Vine Street to get to the Market, and from the North or East, use High to Spruce.
