The City Hall Parking Deck Stairway is CLOSED and Replacement Work is scheduled to begin at City Hall, 700 N. Main St., on Friday, Oct. 23.
As part of the City’s commitment to improve safety and security at City-owned properties, Facilities Management will be working with a local contractor to replace the stairway from the lower to upper parking deck on the east side of City Hall.
Effective immediately, the stairway will be closed for approximately 30 days.
Work by the contractor is expected to start at 8 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 23, and conclude by 5 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 30, weather permitting. Barricades will be in place to prohibit access to the stairway for pedestrian safety. In addition, barrels, cones, and/or warning tape will be placed as appropriate to delineate the work zone to address pedestrian and vehicular safety.
Access to the upper and lower decks will be maintained via the pedestrian ramp on the east and north sides of the parking deck structure. In addition, City vehicles may be moved to the lower deck or to the parking lot on Campo Street, on the east Side of American Linen. Signs will also be posted noting the detour.
The City has verified that no conflicting public or private construction projects will take place in that immediate area during this time.
