City Parking Lot 2 Temporarily Closed

Structural Upgrade Construction will Occur February through April 2012

Construction work on the City’s downtown Lot 2 parking structure, with entrances located on Canon Perdido and Chapala Streets, began today, February 6, 2012, and is expected to continue for approximately 60 days, through April 2012. To ensure public safety Lot 2 will be closed completely during construction.

Temporary signs will be installed to redirect traffic to neighboring City parking Lots 3, 4, 9, and 10, and the Paseo Nuevo garage. Sufficient parking spaces are available in these lots to compensate for the temporary loss of parking spaces in Lot 2 during construction. While Lot 2 is closed, monthly parking permit holders will be permitted to park in any other available downtown City parking lot.

Repairs are necessary to enhance the seismic stability of the structure and improve public safety. Construction work involves repairing, reinforcing, and supporting concrete beams, columns, and girders, and bringing the handicapped accessible parking spaces into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The City successfully completed similar upgrades to Lot 10 last year during the same time period; the Public Works Department wishes to thank the public in advance for their patience during construction.

Additional information is available on the City’s Engineering website.
