The installation of two new electric vehicle chargers will bring traffic late this week and next, according to the city of Decatur.

The city of Decatur, ChargePoint LLC and Craft Electric & Maintenance will install two level two electric vehicle charging stations — one in the North McDonough parking loop in downtown Decatur and one in the Oakhurst Village.

Installation will begin Thursday, June 9 for the downtown station and Monday, June 11 in Oakhurst.

Dates are subject to change based on weather and related circumstances. Installation of both stations should take about one week.

Once installed, each station will be able to serve two parking spaces. 

For the first year of operation, there will be no cost for charging your vehicle, but vehicles will still be subject to the existing two-hour parking limit and downtown parking fees for the North McDonough station.

Throughout the installation, minor impacts to on-street parking are expected at both locations, though vehicle traffic should remain unaffected.
