Newark Municipal Building. (WDEL File)

If you park your car in Newark on weekends, you're in luck--some spaces on Main Street that are restricted during business hours are now available Friday evenings through Monday mornings.

The City of Newark, together with DELDOT, has made metered spaces opposite the construction zone available from 5 p.m. Fridays through 2 a.m. Mondays until the construction is complete, which is forecast for about a month from now.

Keep in mind, though, that safety concerns may prevent those spaces from being available on a given weekend.

If you're looking to park in a municipal lot in Newark, you can check space availability and get directions on your mobile device by using the ParkMe app.
