Water Street Deck

David Miller -- March 28th, 2007

April 9th, Water Street Parking deck renovations will restart. At least 1/3 of the parking deck will be closed at a time. Please advise anyone you know to park elsewhere if they are familiar with the parking options downtown. Thanks

    Water Street Deck Renovations to Resume April 9
    Renovations to the Water Street Parking Deck will resume April 9. This is the completion of the
    project that began August, 2006 before breaking for the Winter. Public Works has contracted
    with Graciano Corp. for the renovation. Downtown Parking is not involved in the contracting of
    the project and has not been given an estimated time line for completion.
    Public Works is making every effort to keep as much of the deck open as possible. Similar to
    last year, however, the rehabilitation, although necessary for the safety of all, will cause a
    challenge for all as fewer spaces will be available. The renovations will require that
    approximately 1/3 of the deck be closed for parking in the Southwest corner closest to Liberty
    and Bruce Streets, upper and lower levels.
    There may also be one week when the top portion of the deck may be completely closed
    while the access ramp is worked on. If possible, the contractor will only close one lane of the
    ramp at a time so that lease holders can still access the second level.
    During construction a limited number of temporary passes may be granted to business owners
    and employees directly effected by the renovation. If you have employees who may be eligible
    for a temporary pass, feel free to apply by phone at 432.8936. The needs of paid lease holders
    will take priority and temporary passes will only be issued so long as there is capacity on top of
    the deck.
    I appreciate your cooperation and apologize for the inconvenience that this will cause. If you
    have any questions or concerns, please call me at 540.432.8936.

    I guess that Nov. 17, 2006 completion date was an included winter break in the fixed-time contract mentioned at the meeting back in August (and in the link above).
