New Parking

Railroad Avenue

The Town and its contractors are excited to announce the opening of 30 additional parking spots along Railroad Avenue! The now one-way (eastbound) road accommodates parallel parking on both sides.  

As a small town with limited parking, patrons, business owners, and residents have expressed concerns to the Economic Development Commission regarding parking in Town. With 30 new parking spots, the EDC is excited and hopeful for additional parking, and encourages business owners to please consider asking employees to park in the new spaces, or further away from the central business core. By doing so, more spots are available on Main St. and adjacent business lots for patrons to support the Lyons economy.
