State Street Garage Update- December 28, 2012

Please note the following press release:


            As part of the ongoing expansion of the State Street Parking Garage, the escalator from State Street to Gay Street next to the Regal Riviera movie theater will be closed permanently next week.
            The escalator will be shut down at 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 2nd, 2013. The elevator next to it will still be open, and a temporary staircase will be opened alongside it.

            The escalator is being replaced with an elevated walkway from the garage, which will cross State Street and connect with the public access way alongside the movie theater.   

            The State Street Garage expansion is a $6.1 million project that will add 250 new spaces to the garage’s existing 842 spaces. Construction is scheduled to be finished in early spring.

Here are a couple of pictures of the escalator and the new temporary stairwell.

Foundation work is still ongoing as well both inside and outside of the State Street Garage.

I hope everyone has a happy, safe,and prosperous New Year.
Thanks for your interest in Downtown Knoxville and in the State Street garage Expansion Project.
