Downtown Lot Closed for Months

City Parking Lot 10, located on the corner of Ortega and Anacapa streets, is closed until the end of April as it undergoes seismic upgrades. The four-story, 546-space garage was built in 1989 at a cost of $4.8 million. Crews are reportedly strengthening the connections between the lot’s beams and columns to withstand a sizeable earthquake. Once work on Lot 10 is completed, retrofits will be made to the Lobero lot over a period of three to four weeks.
