Beginning Sunday, the inside upper levels of Auburn’s downtown parking garage will be closed.
Workers will complete final phase of renovations
The closure will allow workers to complete the final phase of the Downtown Parking Garage Rehabilitation Project. Auburn City Clerk Chuck Mason says users of the garage have been notified of the closure.
During the two-week closure through Sunday, August 7, the city has arranged for temporary use of parking lots on Hulbert Street. All parking garage patrons are encouraged to use these Hulbert Street parking lots which will offer free parking and are just a 6-minute walk from the center of downtown.
City will monitor two-hour on-street parking for abuse
During the garage closure the downtown short-term, on-street parking options will be monitored as they usually are and tickets to violators will be issued. The city encourages its long-term parking garage patrons to utilize the alternative all-day parking lots on Hulbert Street. The city will not be issuing any refunds for any tickets you may receive due to being displaced by this garage closure.
Also, to support small businesses in the downtown area the on-street parking in downtown Auburn offers free two-hour parking for customers of downtown merchants. Individuals that are residents or employees downtown need to use long-term parking options in city parking lots or in these temporary Hulbert Street parking lots while the parking garage is closed. The temporary Hulbert Street parking lots are free to use. Regular fees will apply to all other city parking lots.
