Bangor, Maine parking information

IN LIGHT OF COVID-19

To ease the burden on the Bangor community, particularly Downtown Bangor residents, the City has removed all parking restrictions on Parking Lot 8, Kenduskeag Plaza West, located directly behind the Pickering Square Parking Garage in downtown Bangor.

This lot will be available for vehicle storage and free of charge to anyone who wishes to self-quarantine or isolate due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from Tuesday, March 17, 2020 through at least until March 31, 2020. The City will continue to monitor and evaluate this situation.
