‘Business as Usual’ Downtown Despite Road Closings

OWENSBORO, Ky. (8/9/13) -- Road closings downtown may be frustrating to Owensboro citizens, but from the talk of local restaurant and store owners, business has gone on as usual.

Holly Jackson, Manager of Colby’s on W 3rd St., said since the road closings aren’t on their street, they haven’t been affected.
 
“It hasn’t hurt us at all,” Jackson said.
 
Kelly Creed, Manager of The Crème Coffee House, agreed.
 
“We’ve still been busy so far…but once the construction moves right in front of us, it’ll be a different story,” Creed said. “But we’ll manage.”
 
All the businesses agreed that they had one issue that customers complain about often--parking.
 
“Customers complain about having a hard time getting to us,” Carol Alsup, employee of Concord Custom Cleaners on Frederica, said. “They have to walk in and they don’t like that.”
 
But, other locals didn’t seem to have any problems, even in downtown festivities.
 
“We came to Friday after 5 and were still able to find a parking spot,” Joel Adcock said.
 
No time has been set for the end of downtown construction, but SurfKY will keep you updated.
 
City officials said earlier this week that as construction wraps up, the city expects to add almost 100 new parking spaces downtown.
