    Temporary Parking Changes Due to COVID-19

    Effective Friday, March 20, 2020, the Parking Management Department has lifted parking restrictions in the following areas to allow for free public parking. The lifted restrictions will be in effect until further notice:

    • Jefferson Street - All on-street two-hour time limits
    • Riverfront Lot (located behind Water Dog Restaurant) - Paid hourly parking spaces ONLY located in the middle of the lot
    • Depot Lot - Paid parking
    • Crossroads Lot - Paid parking
    • Clay Street Parking Deck - Middle level paid parking


    We encourage all residents who have to stay home during this time to please use these parking areas for your parking needs. We are still out and about downtown monitoring parking areas to help manage on-street parking space turnover for businesses still in operation and restaurants who need the parking for curb side pick-up. Please help us out and keep parking open for those who still need it for business operations.
    If you can, please continue to support our downtown businesses. Lots of them have great deals going on. More information is available by visiting the Downtown Lynchburg Association (DLA) website at downtownlynchburg.com.
    Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this unprecedented time. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us at 434-455-4045 - or - by email at parking.authority@lynchburgva.gov
    Stay healthy and strong Lynchburg!
