Most of Binghamton’s New $10M Parking Garage Closed “For Repairs”
The top four levels of the recently-opened city-owned parking facility in downtown Binghamton have been off-limits to users while repair operations are underway.
The six-floor $10 million garage at Hawley and Washington Streets has been in operation for about five months.
A sign at the entrance advises users that parking is not available above the second level due to "repairs."
Workers have been busy addressing drainage issues and targeting relatively small cracks that have developed in poured concrete. There apparently are no structural problems reported in the new 304-space garage, which opened on January 11.
The repair operations appear to be causing no inconvenience to those who use the parking facility. Most Binghamton University students who live downtown during the school year have returned home for the summer.
Construction on the garage just west of City Hall started in the spring of last year. William H. Lane Incorporated was the project's general contractor.
