Cary, NC – Construction is now underway on the 30,000-square-foot Cary Regional Library and associated 600-space parking deck at the corner of Walnut Street and Kildaire Farm Road. Early construction work will include grading and clearing with some removal of trees and vegetation. Both the library and parking deck are expected to be complete by the end of 2019.

The new Wake County library is being developed in partnership with the county, who will manage the design and construction of both the library and the parking deck; the deck will serve library patrons and visitors to downtown Cary including the Cary Arts Center, Downtown Park and other nearby venues. The total cost of the project is $23.7 million, of which the Town’s portion is expected to be $13 million.

The Town-owned parking lot on Walker Street will be closed for the entirety of construction.

Cary and Wake County will host a groundbreaking celebration on June 27 at the adjacent Downtown Park. For more information, visit www.wakegov.com/projects and www.townofcary.org/downtown
