=== Construction Update ===

As anyone who's been downtown this week knows, ODOT's project to rebuild Main Street with concrete is fully under way. We've updated our online map with available parking, alley access, road closure locations, and detour routes. *New* public visitor parking is signed at the Chestnut Street lot in addition to the temporary head-in parking on North Broad Street. Remember that many private lots are open to the public nights and weekends! Currently pedestrians must cross at Columbus or High (not Broad) but additional crossings will open as the project proceeds.
==$ Downtown Shopping/Dining Contests $== 
Destination Downtown Lancaster and the Lancaster-Fairfield Chamber of Commerce are both sponsoring contests to encourage their members to support downtown businesses during construction. Bring your receipt from any purchase from any downtown business (pink locations on this map) to the Chamber office between April 7 and May 18 and you'll be entered for a chance to win one of two $100 Visa cards from DDL (or one of two from the Chamber). There is no limit to the amount of times you can enter. The more you shop the more chances to win! Receipt of purchase must be dated between April 7 and May 18, 2014. All receipts must be received in the Chamber office (109 N Broad St, Lancaster) by May 19. Must be a member of Destination Downtown Lancaster or the Lancaster/Fairfield County Chamber of Commerce to win.

Thank you to Mayor Smith, Fairfield County Commissioners, Fairfield National Bank, and Stebelton, Aranda & Snider for sponsoring similar contests for their employees!
