This Park is transformed into a temporary parking lot for downtown businesses and residents to use while the Downtown Westbrook Parking Garage is constructed.
During the month of June and July this temporary parking lot should be accessed from Bridge Street, where a temporary entrance is prepared while a small segment of Main Street is closed for utility work.

Week of 6/27/2022-7/4/2022

A small segment of Main Street is closed from Mechanic Street to Bridge Street to allow for deep excavation to relocate and upgrade 100-year-old utilities.

This small segment of Main Street will be closed for 3-4 weeks, before moving the closure to Mechanic Street (late to mid-July). The temporary parking lot in Saccarappa Park can be accessed from Bridge Street during the closure of Main Street.

This lot remains open during the closure of a small segment of Main Street from Bridge to Mechanic Street.
This lot must be accessed from Bridge Street while Main Street is closed (from Bridge to Mechanic Street).
Sidewalks along Mechanic and Main Streets may be closed for construction, but pedestrian access to area businesses are maintained.
Metro patrons are encouraged to use the stop at Walker Memorial Library (away from active construction).
Stay tuned for more information.
