CLAY, AL (WBRC) -

The City of Clay is expanding the parking lot at Cosby Lake and city leaders want drivers to watch out for the construction site at the north end of the lake.

Construction is already underway on the lot expansion near the Steeplechase subdivision entrance. The expansion will add a few more dozen parking spots. It’s something Mayor Charles Webster said is desperately needed.

Webster wants drivers to only park in the asphalt lots and avoid the zone while construction equipment is in use. He said they want to not only keep people safe, but vehicles damage-free.
 
“Everyone’s been really good about staying clear of it, just be careful and be aware that we’ve got equipment out here if you are out here when the equipment is running,” said Webster. “Especially when they’re backing up and all they can’t see a lot so just be careful, be aware to not get In that construction zone.”

Mayor Webster said the parking lot expansion should be finished by this summer.
