  • Excavation activities and foundation work are ongoing. Excavation activities and heavy truck traffic in and out of the site will continue through November.

Rio Grande Parking Garage Access

Both the upper and lower entrances to the Rio Grande Parking Garage are open.

Currently, there are 15 parking spots on the upper level of the parking garage closed for safety critical overhead work. At this time no full closures of the parking garage or its north entrance are scheduled as part of city offices construction. However, based on site conditions, there may be periodic full closures of the parking garage.

Staircase Closure through summer 2021

The blue staircase connecting Rio Grande Place and the plaza (staircase east of the parking garage/plaza) will close on Monday, Sept., 9 and remain closed for the next two years. For alternate access, use Jail Trail or the parking garage elevator.
