Parking garage maintenance

State Street Parking Garage (formerly Fire House Block):
The Garage will be closed on Wednesday, April 10 at 4 p.m. for spring sweeping. The garage will reopen on Tuesday, April 9 at 6 a.m.

Storrs Street Parking Garage (formerly Capital Commons):
With the arrival of the spring weather, the City will be moving forward with maintenance activities at the Storrs Street Parking Garage (formerly the Capital Commons Parking Garage). Maintenance will include sweeping, cleaning all catch basins, interior pressure washing, as well as repainting all pavement markings. This work will require closure of the parking garage on the following dates:

  • Sunday, April 7 (After 4 p.m.) (Garage will reopen on April 8 at 6 a.m.).
  • Friday, April 19 (After 5:30 p.m.)
  • Saturday, April 20 (All Day)
  • Sunday, April 21 (All Day) (Garage will reopen on April 22 at 6 a.m.).
  • Friday, April 26 (After 5:30 p.m.)
  • Saturday, April 27 (All Day)

Sunday, April 28 (All Day) (Garage will reopen on April 29 at 6 a.m.).

School Street Parking Garage:
The garage will be closed on Thursday, April 11 at 5:30 p.m. for spring sweeping.

With the arrival of spring, the contractor has been able to complete demolition of the old South Stair Tower (i.e. Warren Street Stair) as well as excavate the foundation hole for the new tower. This was very challenging and tedious work due existing underground utilities, including a large electrical vault, several electrical conduits, as well as a 10” water main (see photos below). The new South Stair Tower is tentatively scheduled to be completed in September.

In related news, beginning on April 8, structural steel repairs will begin on the first floor of the garage. This will result in temporary parking and traffic closures for the north half of the first floor, approximately between the elevator and School Street. The closure will last until approximately May 31. The work will also require the closure of the vehicular entrance into the garage immediately adjacent to the North Stair Tower (a.k.a. the School Street Stair Tower). However, the second vehicular entrance on School Street, which serves the upper levels of the garage, will remain open.

This closure will require the relocation of certain handicap parking spaces to the fourth floor of the garage. However, 2 handicap spaces will remain on the first floor at the Warren Street end of the garage.

The Warren Street entrance to the garage will remain open; however, it will only serve the first floor parking spaces located at the south end of the garage.

Please see a map at for more information.

No pedestrian or vehicular or pedestrian traffic between Warren Street and School Street will be permitted through the garage.
