Find alternative parking during downtown construction

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Several parking lots in downtown Nashville will be closed or are already closed as construction of the new Music City Center gets underway.

Concrete barriers went up this week, closing three parking lots at Seventh Avenue and Demonbreun Street south of Broadway, leaving 260 fewer parking spots.

Eventually, 1,200 parking spaces will be gone until the new convention center is complete.

In addition to the convention center construction, drivers will also have to navigate construction for repairs to the city's aging underground water system.

Several meters spots are blocked and will continue to be so until the repairs are complete.

The Nashville Predators, whose fans park in lots that currently closed or will eventually be, are trying to get the word out.

"For our ticket holders who have come here for the last several years, they many have had their routine or particular spots, some of those spaces may no longer be available, so we want them to check the alternatives," explained Jerry Helper with the Predators.

City officials say there are still places to park, if drivers know where to look.

ParkItDowntown.com has up to date information for the public about the parking lots that are open and how much it cost to park there.

One option is the main library garage or the new Pinnacle high rise building, just a few blocks from the Sommet Center.  There are about 1,000 spaces there.

Once the convention center is complete, 2,000 parking spaces will be created.
