WORK ON DOWNTOWN PARKING STRUCTURE

EXPANDING JANUARY 30

WITH ENTRANCE & STAIR ACCESS CHANGES

RAPID CITY, SD—With the preconstruction efforts completed, phase one work on the City’s downtown parking structure is set to begin.

            Effective Monday, January 30 and until further notice, contractors will be working on the south side of the first and second floors of the downtown parking structure adjacent to Main Street Square.  During this period, the east stair tower accessed from Fifth Street will be closed for reconstruction.  Pedestrian access to the upper levels of the parking structure will be available by using the west stair tower from the Sixth Street access.

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

            Officials advise the public should expect periodic detours within the parking structure during this 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
