Project Information / Q & A

Reverse Parking: Parking spaces in front of the business block have been changed to reverse parking. Park in this section using the new method of parking. Reverse parking is designed for drivers to back into the spaces and drive out, which is opposite to the old way of parking.

Helpful tips regarding reverse parking: Driving south (from Rockland) on Main Street, a driver will stop and back into the space. This is very similar but easier than parallel parking. Traveling north (from the Warren direction) a driver may park on the right side of the street and walk across Main Street to the shops or drive in the alleyway or Beechwood Street and park in the large parking area behind the business block.

Why is this being done by MaineDOT? There are several safety reasons behind the change, including:

• It is much safer to exit/drive out of a parking space when the driver has a better view of traffic.

• Reverse parking puts a barrier between the driver and the road or children and the road when opening a vehicle door and exiting a vehicle.

• An individual will not be in the road when placing or removing items from the back of a vehicle.

• Give it a try and shop in Thomaston.
