BIRMINGHAM (WWJ) — The Park Street Parking Structure is set to completely reopen to local residents, business owners and other visitors with the completion of a refurbishment project nearing.
The parking structure, located at 333 Park Street, had been undergoing a repainting and other refurbishments since late June. The parking structure improvements include refurbishing some existing beams by adding steel, cleaning off steel and preparing areas that had developed rust, and painting the entire structure.READ MORE: Michigan Lottery Results For Tuesday, March 2, 2021

The refurbishing project was paid for out of the city’s parking fund, with no taxpayers dollars being used to fund the project. The rooftop valet service, which was created to minimize the impact of this project for the regular users, is expected to continue as well.
“The valet service will likely continue,” O’Meara said. “The Park Street Parking Structure is the only structure in the city that needed to be painted. The remaining four structures are concrete and do not need to be painted.”MORE NEWS: Blue Cross of Michigan CEO Earned $11.5M in 2020
