More stalls restricted in Janesville parking plaza
JANESVILLE--About 40 more parking stalls were scheduled to be closed Tuesday morning on the downtown parking plaza, bringing to 90 the number of stalls closed out of the plaza’s total of 246.
About 50 stalls were closed in early July after a consultant, Bloom Companies, found possible structural problems.
Bloom has since evaluated the understructure of the entire deck and recommended the restricted parking area be expanded until repairs are completed, according to a city news release.
Repair cost is estimated at about $136,000, said Carl Weber, director of public works.
While most of the girders that support the concrete parking deck are in satisfactory condition, girders in 10 locations are seriously deteriorated and require repair.
