North Maple Avenue parking area reopens

Motorists in Greensburg have another place to park in the central business district with the opening this week of the top level of the rebuilt double-deck parking facility on North Maple Avenue.

The facility, which opened on Wednesday, is in the block between East Pittsburgh and East Otterman streets. The top level is accessible from an alley east of North Main Street.

City crews were working Thursday to install parking meters on the lower level, which should open by Monday, city Administrator Thomas Sphon said. Both levels will provide about 90 spaces, some of which will be leased on a monthly basis.

The lot was closed initially in June 2001 when spalling concrete from the ceiling fell. The top level and columns on the double-deck lot were razed last year and rebuilt during the summer and fall.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
