Parking Disruptions

The Hanson Memorial Parking Structure Restoration project is now underway. The Hanson Memorial Parking Garage is located on Brock Street just west of Wellington Street. The work will take place throughout all levels of the building, and will include efforts such as routine structural maintenance, repainting, replacement of waterproofing materials, and upgrades to the building’s mechanical/electrical systems. The work is expected to conclude in late December 2024.

The work will be completed in phases to allow the building to remain open to public parking for the duration of the project. It is anticipated that no more than 50 per cent of the available 271 parking spaces will be closed at any time. There is also parking availability at the Chown Memorial and Robert Bruce Memorial parking garages in the two adjacent blocks to the west.
