With the potential for flooding, city officials will close parking areas near the Kenduskeag Stream.

Friday Dec. 21, at 11 p.m. two parking lots in Downtown Bangor will close. With over two inches of rain in the forecast, plus astronomical high tide brought on by the approaching full moon, officials will close the Kenduskeag Plaza East and West parking lots behind the Pickering Square Parking Garage.

The lots are listed as 7 and 8 on this map of Bangor parking areas.

The lots may close Saturday as well. City officials will reevaluate the flooding potential tomorrow.
