By this weekend all of the decks of the State Street Garage should be open for use including the new top deck. Painting and signage has been virtually completed. All of the elevators are now back in working order including the elevator on the west side of State Street. The overpass has been functional for some time.
Work is ongoing along State Street and also Central Avenue for sidewalk construction and repair. This may necessitate continued lane closures for a short while.
The new parking spaces being created on the bottom two levels have been delayed pending design upgrade and probably won't be available until later this fall at this point.
Landscaping will follow this last bit of work and the folks at Dogwood Arts have arranged for a sculpture to be placed on the site of the old elevator core which is in the process of demolition. This area will be added to their mix for annual sculpture exhibits.
Following are some recent pictures of the garage. The last several pictures were taken by friends at McCarty Holsaple McCarty.
Thanks for your interest in this project and in Downtown Knoxville.
