Roanoke to close Bullitt Avenue to cars

Posted: Updated:
ROANOKE, VA -

City of Roanoke news release

As part of the Elmwood Park Improvement Project, the City of Roanoke announces that construction plans include closing Bullitt Avenue in order to create a pedestrian artwalk in that location.

The road closing will take place on the morning of March 11. As a result, on-street parking will be impacted. 

While 27 existing parking spaces on Bullitt Avenue will be eliminated, the city has taken the initiative to create 36 new permanent on-street parking spaces:

• 17 two-hour parking spaces on the south side of Day Avenue, between Jefferson Street and 1st Street

• 10 one-hour parking spaces on the south side of Bullitt Avenue between Jefferson Street and 1st Street

• 9 one-hour parking spaces on the east side of Jefferson Street, between Bullitt Avenue and Luck Avenue

 

With these additions, access to businesses on Jefferson Street and to the park will be greatly improved for residents and visitors. 

A street map showing the new on-street parking locations is posted on the city's website. Click on the following link to access the map: http://tiny.cc/83x9sw
