Construction work on the public parking lot on Pleasant Street is slated to restart this spring, and the city will hold a public meeting Thursday May 17 to discuss the remaining work.
During construction, the lot will be closed to vehicles, the city said in a statement. Remaining work includes installations of decorative lighting, granite curbing, street signs, and the repaving of Linden Avenue and Garnet Road.
At the 6 p.m. meeting at Malden Government Center, representatives from the construction and engineering companies will be on hand to answer questions and explain the work.
The lot closure comes after the city announced that it had squeezed 48 additional parking spaces into the existing downtown parking configuration. The city also is included in a parking app, BestParking, that lets smartphone users find parking spaced for cheap.
