People using wheelchairs are temporarily advised not to use the garage due to limited elevator access

9/28/2018

People who use wheelchairs or who are not comfortable using the stairs are advised not to park in the garage at this time as there is currently only one elevator in operation.

Two nearby parking stalls are temporarily designated for wheelchair users. The parking stalls are located on the north side of SW Taylor Street between SW Park Avenue and SW 9th Avenue, directly adjacent to Director Park.

The phased renovation plan currently underway is designed to allow use of the garage during construction. One of the two elevators left in operation during construction is unexpectedly out of service, leaving just one remaining operational elevator at this time.

This is advisory is needed because any unexpected issue with the operation of the remaining elevator might strand garage users who are not able to use the stairs.

Four new elevators are scheduled to be operational in spring 2019. We apologize to our customers with mobility challenges for this unexpected inconvenience.

To access the temporary wheelchair-ready spaces, turn East onto Southwest Alder Street, South on Southwest Broadway, and then West onto Southwest Taylor Street. The spaces are adjacent to Director Park.
