Staunton: Work resumes on Johnson Street Parking Garage

staunton newRepairs to the Johnson Street Parking Garage resumed today, and customers should expect parking restrictions in portions of the garage over the next four weeks.

The restrictions will be in effect while finishing touches on the garage renovation project are completed, including painting, top coating and concrete work. Much of the work remains on the top deck. The garage will remain open while repairs are occurring; however, customers should look out for directional signs and follow parking restrictions. Parking restrictions will be temporary and may change daily.

The City began an extensive renovation of the garage last May and closed the garage for seven months during the renovation. The City partially reopened the garage last December with a plan to complete the renovation in the spring, once weather conditions were more favorable for the remaining work.

While the City expects work to be finished by mid-May, the project’s completion is contingent on weather.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
