City plans repairs to parking garage

$1 million to be spent over 3 years

ANDERSON – The downtown parking garage has not undergone a major rehabilitation since it first opened in 1980, but work is planned to begin this year.

The five-story parking garage at the corner of Main and 11th streets is slated to receive major rehabilitation work over the next three years. The grand opening for the Plaza Parking garage took place in September 1980 and the cost of construction was $1.6 million.

The Anderson Redevelopment Commission expects to spend approximately $1 million on the rehabilitation work through 2016.

The Redevelopment Commission has budgeted $350,000 in each of the next three years for the project.

Mike Spyers, city engineer, said a contract has been awarded to Walker Associates for design and preliminary engineering work on the upgrades. Design plans should be completed by May with work starting this year, he said.

Structural work will be done on the all-concrete facility, and portions of the garage will remain open during the upgrades, Spyers said.

Plaza Parking has approximately 350 spaces. Work was done on the structure in 1994 when the concrete ramps were sealed and waterproofed.
