For the week of June 11, the sidewalk and some parking in front of the building on Kimbark Street will be closed. Crews will be removing trees and bushes, demolition of the perimeter brick wall and stairs, and soil excavation for garage beam access. This closure will be in effect through the end of June.

Project Background

The $4 million parking garage renovation project was recommended to the City of Longmont to update the failing existing post tension supports of the structure, which were installed when the garage was built in 1975. To bring the building to code standards, new external post tension supports will be installed and new concrete overlay will be applied. Although the garage is in need of structural repairs, the offices located above the garage are safely supported. Offices located above the garage include: CMO’s office, Finance and Utility Billing office, Human Resources, Risk Management, Neighborhood Resources, and CDBG, and Parapet Wall.
