Making Room for Parking in Broadway

BROADWAY -- A $50,000 project is underway in the Town of Broadway that will create more parking spaces. The town is removing unwanted bump outs in some areas on Main Street.

The bump outs were added six years ago as a safety precaution, because they encourage drivers to slow down.

Broadway's town manager says the project will add more parking spaces.

He says the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is helping to offset the cost of the project by paving the roads.

"We had an independent consultant from Staunton, Frazier and Associates come in and take a look at our downtown and recommend some improvements and as apart of that we felt that timing was important, while VDOT is paving to go ahead and get those improvements done in advance of that," said Kyle O'Brien, who is the Broadway town manager.
