City Hall Parking Improvements
On Monday, construction will begin on the upper level of the Municipal Center parking lot. The almost 30-year-old parking deck will get concrete patching, sidewalk replacement, reconstruction of an ADA accessible ramp, and staircase handrail replacement. The work will take place in stages, with one entrance to each level of the deck always being maintained. No parking spaces on the upper deck will be removed from service during construction, and it’s all scheduled to be completed by the end of November.
