Park Avenue Road Work

  • News
  • 6/28/2017 2:41:00 PM

The City of Deephaven will be doing mill and overlay work on Park Avenue.  The work is scheduled to begin sometime after July 4th and will take about three weeks.  For the most part, the road will remain open.  The Park Avenue parking lot, down near the MYC dock, will remain open as they are not going to be redoing the lot at this time.  However, there will not be any off street parking along Park Avenue during this project; instead you can park in designated areas along Azure Avenue or Lake Street. You might want to plan a little extra time when heading out to race.
