Downtown Cumming parking facilities begin construction Tuesday

By Alyson Shields Reporter
CUMMING - One of two new parking facilities begins construction in downtown Cumming next Tuesday at the intersection of Castleberry Road and Maple Street.

According to Jodi Gardener, Forsyth County Director of Communications, the new Castleberry lot will be three levels and have about 250 spaces.

Parking will be limited during the construction. Alternative parking in lots near the County Administration Building are designated with a red dot.

Those with jury summons beginning October 28 will have a designated lot on the Cumming Fairgrounds with shuttle access to and from the administration building. The shuttle will run from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Gardener stressed the parking for those with jury summons on October 14 would still be available in the lot on Castleberry and Maple. "They don't need to worry about the construction and the shift in the parking locations if they're reporting for jury duty on October 14," Gardener said.

The parking decks are part of the SPLOST VII-funded new courthouse and jail project. The second facility, which will be near the County Administration Building, begins construction in the spring.
