Parking Construction To Cause Delays at Town Hall


Expect lots of construction traffic, delays and possible closures at Fayetteville and Second streets for the next two weeks as crews are working to wrap up the paving of new parking spaces around Town Hall/The Clayton Center.

Work from April 30 through May 11 may require Second Street between Fayetteville and Church streets to be temporarily blocked and it may also force the closure of the intersection of Fayetteville & Second streets. Please detour one block down using Main, Horne, O’Neil or Church streets. 

This project will add 20 additional angled parking spaces at Town Hall/The Clayton Center. Ten new spaces will be added to Fayetteville Street and 10 new spaces on Second Street. This will be public parking that can be used by any visitors to downtown. 

Fencing is blocking the sidewalk coming into the main door of our building on Second Street. Visitors coming in to The Clayton Center need to continue to use the sidewalk that passes from the side parking lot in front of the auditorium steps to enter through the Second Street double doors to the lobby. 

The work should not affect access to the parking lot between Horne Memorial UMC and The Clayton Center or the main Town Hall parking lot on Horne Street. The project is eliminating the half circle parking directly in front of the building on Second Street. 

Street parking has been restricted on the south side of Second Street – mostly from the corner of Fayetteville, the circle directly in front of our building, and up to the entrance of the side parking lot just before the church. 

We have made the crews abundantly aware of the timing of Horne UMC’s popular pick-up and drop-off school program and they will be trying to work around this as best they can. 
First the crews hand-removed each of the brick sidewalk pavers so that we can re-use them. Now they’ve compacted the ground and poured curb and gutter. It’s time for the paving. We do not expect the crews to work on weekends or Sundays. 

If you have any questions or concerns, Andy Simerman is the project coordinator –
