New parking area open in Bluefield

BLUEFIELD (WVVA) – A total of 65 new parking spaces are now open in downtown Bluefield.

City leaders held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new open air parking facility on Scott Street.

The parking garage is a green project that incorporates a storm water drainage system that actually absorbs water and even filters it as it runs through the pavement.

Bluefield city manager Jim Ferguson says this is the first of its kind in southern West Virginia.

The price tag of the project is just over $2.5 million.
