Public parking garage takes shape

Over the past few weeks, the parking deck structure was built. Constructed of precast concrete panels, individual sections of floor and wall were trucked in to the site and hoisted into place by a crane.

The deck structure is fully built with two levels. The lower level entrance will be at street level from Illinois Street. The lower level will slope down to the north, going below grade. The lower level will provide access to basement level parking beneath each of the adjacent buildings. The upper level will be accessed from a ramp from First Street.

Pedestrian access to the future riverwalk will be provided from both levels at the north end of the deck.
