Downtown Parking Lot Improvements Underway
Improvements will soon start on two downtown parking lots to meet increased parking demand in historic downtown Wilson. The Centre Brick Lot will be redesigned to allow more spaces, while a vacant lot will soon become the Renfrow Parking Lot.
An existing vacant lot accessed by Pine Street and Tarboro Street near the new Truist facility will become the Renfrow Lot. Construction may start by the end of February on the temporary lot, which will help address parking concerns during construction of the Pine Street development project, announced in October 2019. The temporary lot will have 119 spaces. The current plan is for the lot to be open for public parking once the Pine Street project construction is complete.
The Centre Brick lot, accessed by Goldsboro Street and Tarboro Street, will be redesigned to accommodate 200 spaces and resurfaced. Construction will begin once the Renfrow Lot improvements are complete and the new lot is expected to open in July 2020.
