Parking disruptions

The Hanson Memorial Parking Structure Restoration project is now underway. The Hanson Memorial Parking Garage is located on Brock Street, just west of Wellington Street. The work will occur at all levels of the building and include efforts such as routine structural maintenance, repainting, replacement of waterproofing materials and upgrades to the building’s mechanical/electrical systems. The work is expected to be completed by the end of December 2024.

The work will be completed in phases so that the building can remain open for public parking for the duration of the project. It is expected that no more than 50 percent of the available 271 parking spaces will be closed at any time. Parking is also available at the Chown Memorial and Robert Bruce Memorial parking garages in the two adjacent blocks to the west.
