Off-street parking available during CentrePointe construction

Construction at downtown Lexington's CentrePointe development has closed parking spaces in much of the block that includes Limestone and Vine, Main and Upper streets. But shoppers can find parking downtown, business owners said Monday.

For instance, shoppers of Failte Irish Imports on South Upper Street can park at the Lexington Financial Center, sometimes referred to as the Big Blue building, for free if they get their parking ticket validated by Failte, its owners said Monday.
