The parking lot of the Crozet Shopping Center will be rejuvenated this month. Heavily trafficked sections will be milled and resurfaced and the rest resealed and restriped. A new drainage system will be installed in front of the stores to end the chronic puddling from rain. A new island for shade trees will be added to the lot.
Meanwhile, the Fruit Growers buildings in the Olde Towne Shoppes (pictured below) will be resided and then repainted “Crozet Pizza red.” Carpenters working on the buildings, which date to 1910, report they are tough and structurally sound.
All the repairs are expected to be done by Nov. 15. The businesses remain open. Customers can find parking available at the former Patterson’s Flower Shop building. The center’s owners say they regret the inconvenience caused by the work.
