The job putting in the foundation for the underground parking garage on the south lot off Ash Street at the County Administration Complex will soon turn the old surface parking county employees used into starting grounds for the county's Waterfront Park. Grounds had been pulverized on Friday, February 22nd.
Construction work started on September 24 in 2012.
An excavation was filled with guides for the work putting in the foundation. Digging machines were parked on the lot. After the garage later this year, parkers will find 250 paces to park in.
Work will then move to the north parking lot site on Grape Street.
Back on the south lot, workers will build the linear fountain and civic greens in the south half of the 11 acre Waterfront Park that will open in mid-2014.
Until county employees get their parking garage, the public servants are using the north lot and metered spaces off Harbor Drive and on Pacific Highway. Parkers are also using the spaces at the Kettner Boulevard and Cedar Street lot and the Lane Field lot on Broadway, both a short distance away. The Kettner Boulevard lot is the site for the 700 space public parking structure the county is prepared to start building. At a cost of 26.2 million dollars.
