Downtown Parking Lot Improvement Projects to Begin July 23

Beginning July 23, parking lot #6, located on Illinois Street between Main and University and parking lot #8, a permit lot located on Lansing Street between Broadway and Michigan will be closed due to reconstruction. Both lots will receive new pavement, curbs and gutters, drive approaches, sidewalk, a new storm sewer including an underground detention system as well as other amenities.

Permit holders are requested to park in lot #7, located at the NE corner of University and Illinois, behind Listening Ear and The Bird Bar and Grill or in lot #5, located at the SE corner of Michigan and Washington, behind the old Ward Theatre.

This project is expected to be completed by September 17.
