Parking Garage Renovation Phase 2 begins Nov. 1
October 3, 2019
 

Phase 2 Closures
(Columbus, OH)— The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board (CSRAB) will begin Phase 2 of the Ohio Statehouse parking garage repair project Friday, November 1, 2019. The garage renovations have an estimated completion date of late summer 2020.

The Ohio Statehouse Garage is a three level parking structure that was built in 1964. The last restoration project was completed in 1993 during the Statehouse renovations. The parking garage is U-shaped with nine stair towers and four elevators located throughout.

The garage services both daily and monthly parking customers, accommodating approximately 1,200 vehicles daily.

During Phase 2 of 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. The reserved spaces will be moved in this phase.

During construction, traffic flow will be maintained, and access to each level will be provided. All driving entrances will be open into the garage, but the Broad and Third Street exits will be closed. Vehicles MUST use the State Street exit at the southeast corner of the garage.

All stairs and elevators will be open except the North revolving entrance to the Statehouse and the adjoining stairway. The walking entrance to the Rhodes Tower will be open to the public.

Please, no pedestrian traffic on the ramps. This is especially dangerous during construction. Please use caution when driving or walking in the garage.

Many variables can affect the timing of a construction project. A map is attached, and updates about the Ohio Statehouse parking garage repair project can be found at http://www.ohiostatehouse.org/announcements.
