Downtown Parking Deck Gone

All that remains of the parking deck in downtown Cumming is rubble.

The parking deck once located at the intersection of East Main Street and Mason Street in downtown Cumming across from the Dairy Queen is now a pile of rubble.

The nearly 20-year-old parking deck was the first structure to be demolished as it was situated on the site of the county's future new courthouse and jail. The other structures on the list to be razed, include a government building that housed several offices of the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office and a professional building. A small building on the site of the new jail will also be demolished.

Jodi Gardner, spokesperson for the county, said the demolition process is scheduled to take approximately 45 days.

The new courthouse and jail projects were approved by Forsyth County voters in November 2011 as part of the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) VII program.

Industrial Facilities Solutions, LLC is doing the demolition.
