One parkade has reopened and a second parkade will soon close as the City of Kamloops continues work in its two downtown parking structures.
The Seymour Street parkade, between Second and Third avenues, reopened on Aug. 10 as replacement of the traffic deck membrane was completed. Crews from Unitech Construction Management Ltd. will now move to the Lansdowne Street parkade, at the corner of Lansdowne Street and Third Avenue, which will close to the public on Aug. 12.
Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by the end of August.
The projects were scheduled consecutively to ensure one parkade remained open at all times. Off-street parking is also be available in the following city-owned surface parking lots:
• 300 St. Paul Street
• 400 Lorne Street
• 500 Lorne Street
• Heritage House parking lot at Riverside Park
• Sandman Centre north parking lot
• Riverside Park west end lot
As the city is not currently collecting parking fees in the parkades and city-owned surface lots, parking is available on a first come, first-served basis. Parking fees will be reinstated on Sept. 7.
