6th/Cherry-Trade Municipal Parking Deck given some new upgrades

The 6th/Cherry-Trade Municipal Parking Deck in downtown Winston-Salem has recently undergone some new improvements to make it more attractive as a parking alternative in downtown Winston-Salem.  With a budget of $300,000, the city did extensive power washing and painting in the interior of the parking garage.  Additionally each level of the deck was given a distinctive paint scheme to assist with visitor recognition of where they left their car.  Another important improvement was removing all of the old high pressure sodium lights with brand new LED lighting technology which is not only more efficient, but will also add to the brightness of the lighting levels in the parking deck.   Finally, new security cameras and transparent entrance doors were installed throughout the parking garage.

The improvements were funded equally by the City of Winston-Salem's Parking Enterprise Fund and the Downtown Winston-Salem Business Improvement District.  With the increasing visitor traffic coming to downtown Winston-Salem, this municipal parking deck is increasingly being utilized as a parking resource.  These aesthetic and safety improvements along with the $2 flat rate for evening and weekend parking makes this a great option due to its central location in the heart of downtown Winston-Salem.  

6th/Cherry Trade Parking Deck at the NE Corner of 6th and Cherry is in close proximity to the Benton Convention Center as well as the Downtown Arts District

Each of the 5 Levels of the Parking Garage has its own unique color scheme for visitor recognition of where they parked their vehicle

New LED Lighting has replaced all of the old high pressure sodium lights throughout the parking garage.
