Last year, the city of Toledo created temporary angled parking along Main Street between Front Street and Starr Avenue. Now, construction is under way to install permanent curb cuts for parking along that stretch of Main Street.
It's an effort to create a more business-friendly environment. More parking spaces will mean more people can visit businesses, plus traffic will slow down through the 25 mph zone.
Rob Croak, an east Toledo businessman, says he's been pleased with how it's helped the business district.
"The Main Street improvements have been great for us because it used to be a racetrack out here. With the four lanes, people didn't slow down and from a small business perspective, it was tough, because it was dangerous at times, because how fast everyone drove," said Croak.
The $359,000 construction project is being paid by the city's capital improvements budget. Work is expected to finish by the end of September.
