Garage Renovation, Phase 3 Began March 30, 2020


In order to extend the life of the parking structure, a large-scale repair program was implemented in 2019. This repair program will ensure the long-term structural integrity of the parking garage, allowing for many future years of use.

Throughout the repairs the garage will remain in service, however at a reduced capacity. Approximately 25%, or 300 spaces, will be under construction throughout the entire project. During construction, traffic flow will be maintained and access to each level will be provided.

During this phase, traffic patterns will change. Please use caution when driving or walking in the garage.
