In an effort to make parking a little less of a hassle in downtown Roswell, the city improved one of its lots earlier this week.

Work on the parking lot on Green Street was completed Wednesday and the lot now has about 70 spaces for vehicles.

Crews laid down new gravel in the parking lot, installed rubber curbs, filled potholes, removed old asphalt and poured a new concrete driveway.

In a statement, Roswell Mayor Lori Henry said the city was “excited” to transform the lot and provide additional parking for folks heading downtown.

“This is one of many ways that we hope to address the need for more parking,” Henry said. “(The city council is) working closely with staff, local business owners, and residents to come up with creative solutions to this challenge.”

The lot is located at 1056 Green Street, right behind Fire Station No. 1.
