The parking deck located at the intersection of East Main Street and Mason Street in downtown Cumming will close at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 28. If you use the parking deck make sure your vehicle is removed by that time.
The parking deck is scheduled for demolition to allow for construction of a new courthouse approved by voters in Nov. 2011 as part of the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) VII program.
"The demolition is expected to begin in mid-January, with the specific date to be determined as we complete the preparation that must be done in advance of the demolition," wrote Jodi Gardner, spokesperson for the county, in an e-mail to Cumming Patch.
Upon closure of the parking deck, jurors and others doing business at the Forsyth County Courthouse should use the parking lot at the southwest corner of Maple Street and Castleberry Road.
“Throughout this project, there will certainly be a lot of activity and changes taking place in downtown Cumming, starting with the demolition of the structures currently on the site of the new courthouse,” said County Manager Doug Derrer. “Forsyth County appreciates everyone’s patience and understanding during this project.”
