New Hampshire Street parking garage to close July 5-18

Share this post or save for later

The parking garage on New Hampshire Street between Ninth and 10th streets will be closed for renovation and improvement work from Tuesday, July 5 through Monday, July 18.


During that two-week stretch, parking in the garage will be limited to public parking permit and reserved stall holders, according to a city news release.

Below is a map that notes other parking places the city suggests trying. There’s an X over the New Hampshire Street garage. Parking in the Vermont Street garage, noted on the map, will be free during the project.

Lot 8, the Farmers Market lot, is also noted on the map. Lot 8 is available Sundays through Fridays, but it is reserved once a week for Farmers Market parking. The market is open from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday mornings.

Blue squares with the letter “P” indicate 10-hour parking, and green squares indicate two-hour free parking lots.

The closure is to clean, reseal and repaint the parking decks, according to the release.

“This process involves pressure washing, dry time, curing and time for painting, and the most efficient way to do this is to close the garage to vehicles for two weeks.”

The release said city staff looked at event calendars for June and July and determined that July 5-18 would be the least impactful time for the work to occur.
