LAKE PLACID — Street parking on Lake Placid’s Main Street is expected to be unavailable for four days starting next week as construction crews repave the road.

Main Street will be repaved starting from its intersection with state Route 73 to Brewster Park at the intersection of Saranac Avenue and Main Street. The work is scheduled to last four days and is scheduled to start on Wednesday. The work was originally scheduled to start on Monday, but the village rescheduled the work due to inclement weather.

Street parking on Main Street won’t be available on days the road is being paved.

Municipal parking lots on Main Street will remain open during paving. While the NBT lot is accessible by both Hillcrest Avenue and Main Street, Department of Public Works Superintendent Brad Hathaway said that there could be some temporary blockages of other municipal lots when crews are actively paving in front of the lots’ entrances.

Traffic will continue to be one-way, traveling northbound on Main Street with a southbound detour on Hillcrest Avenue, Olympic Drive and Parkside Drive.

This is the final paving of Main Street, though side roads are expected to be paved in the first half of the week of Oct. 3. The detour will remain in place after paving as crews mark the road and complete their work for the season. The detour is expected to be lifted by mid-October.
