New On-Street Parking Added in Anticipation of Bullitt Avenue Closure 

As the Elmwood Park Renovation Project moves forward, the City of Roanoke is keeping downtown businesses apprised of changes due to park construction. Melinda Mayo the city’s Public Information Officer informed Downtown Roanoke Inc. that construction will close Bullitt Avenue on the morning of March 11. Bullitt Avenue is being transformed into a pedestrian artwalk.

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 said Mayo:

  • 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 

The city believes that with these additions, access to businesses on Jefferson Street and to the park will be greatly improved for residents and visitors.
