Burlington offering parking deals during St. Paul construction

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Burlington officials plan to offer parking deals as the downtown area prepares for road closures, including St. Paul Street.

Signs are now up at the Maple and King Street garage entrances to the new Champlain College student apartments. They offer first-hour-free parking and $1 for every hour thereafter.

Officials say the deals are part of a community outreach campaign to ease the pain during construction.
