Ongoing Periodic Closures Due to Garage Deck Resurfacing


Why do the Garage Decks Need to be Resurfaced?


The deck resurfacing project was identified in our 2016 engineering assessment. Resurfacing will maintain structural integrity and safety of the garages by preventing water from permeating concrete surfaces.


Structural Integrity:
Cracks in the decking allow water to permeate concrete and can lead to rust on internal rebar. When this rebar expands, it can lead to cracks in the concrete and eventual structural failure of the garage. Sealing cracks and joints will help prolong the life of the garage.

Safety:
Rebar expansion due to moisture can lead to lifted and cracked areas of concrete, causing uneven pedestrian walking surface.
Resurfacing the deck will give it more grip and make it safer for pedestrians to walk on.

Comfort and Noise Reduction:
The new deck coating will help reduce squeaking tires when driving within the garage.
Sealing cracks will reduce water leaking throughout the structure.

Parcade Garage

[Updated 7/16/19] The east third of Parcade Garage level three will be closed from 5:00 a.m. on July 11th through 5:00 a.m. on July 29th, weather permitting. During this time, the garage will be open for permit holders only.


Hourly parkers are encouraged to use the Overpark, Butterfly, or 8th & Pearl locations.


The closure will allow removal of old deck coating and the painting of temporary lines. New deck coating will be applied towards the middle of August.

Thank you for your patience while we maintain the garages.
