Downtown Parking Restrictions
Work to remove the landscaping island in the parking lot behind Duluth Trading will begin on Wednesday April 15, 2015. Work is expected to be completed by April 17th. The lot should be fully open by April 21st to accommodate the soft opening of the Port Exploreum. All work is weather dependent. During that time, parking will be prohibited in the center of the parking lot, but remain open in the stalls around the perimeter of the lot.
The City of Port Washington Street Department has openings for part-time seasonal work and also summer help. The City of Port Washington Senior Center also has an opening. For more information, please visit our Employment page.
North Beach Access
The planned improvements for access to North Beach will begin on Monday, March 30, 2015. Temporary fencing is now installed that will prohibit access to the beach until the project is completed at the end of May. This work, in addition to the re-roofing of the Wastewater Treatment Plant, will also result in the closure of the parking lot until the end of May. Signage is posted on Lake St. and on the pathways directing beach-goers to use the Upper Lake Park stairs during this time. The improvements to the North Beach access path will include a wider walkway for pedestrians and bikes, a drop off area for cars, improved lighting, and ornamental fencing. The pathway will be reopened in late May, with the new fencing installed by the end of June. Click here to see the area that is to be blocked off.
