Select parking lots closed downtown starting Jan 26 for soil testing

The City is conducting a feasibility study for different uses in four parking lots downtown. Part of this study includes geotechnical investigation, which involve drilling boreholes into the ground. The purpose is to learn about factors that are important for any future development—e.g. the soil composition, load capacity, etc.

Terraprobe and MHPM Project Managers Inc. will be conducting Core Drilling in four downtown surface lots, that will require full or partial closure. Any permit holders in these lots will be relocated to the parking garage at 414 Locust St.

Dates of Drilling:

Lot 5 (Brant/Elgin) – Sunday, January 26, 2014; 8 am to 5 pm: Full lot closure – Barricade entrance at 6AM by Core Officers

Lot 3 (John St)– Monday, January 27, 2014; 8 am to 5 pm: Partial Closure (north section) – Barricade entrance at 6AM by Core Officers; Relocate all permit holders to parking garage at 414 Locust St.
