more orange netting on water street

Brent Finnegan -- August 16th, 2006

You might think there’s some sort of conspiracy to surround Finnigan’s Cove with so much orange construction fencing that no one can get in or out, but the city says the parking deck on Water Street is merely undergoing necessary maintenance.

Half the deck will be closed during the work week until mid-November, in order to reinforce the structural integrity of the deck. It’s maintenance, not renovation or addition, so don’t expect things to look much different in November. Another thing the city plans to fix are the leaks coming through the upper deck every time it rains.

The whole deck should be open on the weekends, since the work is mainly being done Mondays through Thursdays. The farmer’s market will still be there Saturday mornings, and in the city municipal lot (across from the DNR) on Tuesday mornings.
