SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orange Avenue Parking Lot, located on the southeast corner of Orange Ave. and Second Street will be temporarily closed starting Wednesday, July 9th through the end of the month.
As a substitute, drivers can use on-street parking around the area or parking lots like First Street Parking Lot and Second Street Garage, which are just a short walk away from the Orange Avenue lot.
The closure is due to drainage improvements being made in flood-prone areas in addition to repairing the parking lot's pavement. It is estimated 20 parking spots will be affected.
Three on-street spaces located on Orange Avenue will be closed as well due to repair crews using the area, and will be unavailable for about a week.
