PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Work on the McKay Street Parking Garage begins Monday, Feb. 4, and continues weekday nights between 6 p.m. and 2 a.m.
The $6.5 million project of the 25-year-old garage begins with the demolition of the fourth floor. Electricity will be turned off on the third floor every evening at 6 and no parking will be allowed after that time. The third floor will be open during the day until 6 p.m.
The city asks motorists to watch for signs and cones that will guide them to other areas throughout the garage for parking. All other areas in the garage, including the three-hour public parking areas and the parking lot will the available and safe to park.
The night construction work is in an effort to minimize disturbance, inconvenience and improve safety to those who park and work in the vicinity of the garage. Downtown Pittsfield thanks for citizens for their patience and endurance during this project.
