Public Meeting on State Street Garage Construction

Posted: 12/10/2012
A public meeting regarding the State Street Garage construction will be held on Thursday, Dec. 13 at 5 p.m. at the East Tennessee History Center, 601 S. Gay St.

City of Knoxville officials and construction managers with the State Street Garage expansion project will provide updates on the ongoing construction.

This will include projected schedules for lane and road closures around the garage, and expected limitations on parking availability in the garage during construction.

Please note that Union Avenue between State and Central streets will be narrowed to one lane beginning today, and the Union Avenue entrance to the garage as well as the entire bottom level of parking will be closed for approximately one week.

The State Street Garage expansion is a $6.1 million project that will add 250 new spaces to the garage's existing 842 spaces.

It will also add an elevated walkway across State Street to connect to Gay Street, replacing the existing escalator.
