Public Reminded of Construction with Access Adjustments in Parking Structure

RAPID CITY, SD—City officials remind the public of access adjustments to the downtown parking structure due to ongoing construction activities.

             Phase one construction work on the parking structure adjacent to Main Street Square began on January 30 and is scheduled over the next several weeks.  Contractor crews remain focused on the south side of the first and second floors of the structure.  During the construction period, the east stair tower accessed from Fifth Street remains closed for reconstruction.  Pedestrian access to the upper levels of the parking structure is available by using the west stair tower from the Sixth Street side.

            In addition, public parking on the first floor of the structure is accessed from the Fifth Street entrance.  Access to leased and upper-level parking is available from the Sixth Street entrance. 

            The public can expect periodic detours within the parking structure during this construction phase and throughout much of the renovation process.  Drivers are advised to reduce speed and use caution around the work areas.

            The downtown parking structure renovation project will occur in multiple phases.  The project is estimated for completion in late fall.  The project includes needed repairs and renovations aimed at improving the structural integrity of the parking structure and improving the ramp’s stairwells.

             SECO Construction is the contractor on the project.  Parking questions can be directed to City Parking Operations Manager Anna Gilligan at the parking hotline at 605-394-6098.  Questions regarding the construction project can be directed to SECO Construction at 605-390-3634.
