Lancaster Parking Authority to spend nearly $1M on maintenance and rehabilitation
The Lancaster Parking Authority said it will be spending nearly $1 million on maintenance and construction work slated to begin this month at three of its garages in the city.
One is the Prince Street Garage, where the Lancaster Parking Authority started work last summer on the helix exit ramp. Remaining repairs to the upper levels are scheduled to begin on Monday, July 23.
The job, which includes inspecting and repairing the concrete work, is expected to be completed by late fall.
"These repairs are vital for the ongoing longevity of this facility," Larry Cohen, executive director of the Lancaster Parking Authority, said in a statement.
Both monthly permit parkers and visitors can continue to use the garage during the construction period.
Parkers on the upper four floors will be rerouted to lower-level floors. There may be some delays when large numbers of drivers are exiting the garage at the same time, the authority said.
Both entrances and exits will remain open, so drivers will enter and exit the same way they always have, according to Cohen.
Summer maintenance work is also scheduled for a small area in the King Street Garage. Construction to complete the roof work in the Penn Square Garage is slated for this month as well.
