Portion of Van Buren Parking Deck to Close for Waterproofing Starting November 9

Second floor section closest to Main Street will be inaccessible for approximately two weeks

Pending weather or unforeseen circumstances, work on the second floor addition to the Van Buren Parking Deck will begin on Wednesday, November 9. This portion of the deck extends out over the retail units within the Main Street Promenade and will render that area unusable for approximately two weeks.

Work will include removal of the previous waterproofing, cleaning and preparation of the deck as well as application of the new waterproofing material, wall flashing and restriping of parking spaces. Once work begins, there will be no vehicular or pedestrian access to this section of the deck until work is complete.

At this time, work will also begin to a portion of the second floor in the main deck that lies above the mechanical room of the parking deck. However, only half of this area will see work at a time to allow vehicles to continue to drive through and access the W. Benton Avenue exit from the deck.

During all work, signs will be in place with information about the work as it progresses and guiding drivers through or away from work zones entirely. Drivers are still asked to allow more time to enter and exit the deck while work is being conducted.

Work is expected to be complete by Tuesday, November 22, 2016. Areas of the deck that are complete ahead of schedule will re-open as they become available.
