Construction & Street Closures Update: November 06, 2017

Utility work under East Wilson Street presently restricts traffic to one lane on East Wilson Street.  In addition, the portion of South Pinckney Street between the Government East Parking Garage entrance and East Wilson Street is closed. The sidewalk along Government East to the Capitol Square remains open until further notice. This work is to install underground utilities associated with the Judge Doyle Square project. During this time, the Government East Parking Garage entrance/exit on South Pinckney Street will remain open via East Doty Street.  Both lanes of East Wilson Street are expected to reopen about November 8th.

On Monday, October 30th, the entire 200 block of South Pinckney Street will close until the completion of the Judge Doyle Square project in 2021. Drivers parking at the Government East Parking Garage will need to use the East Wilson Street entrance/exit. A walkway along South Pinckney will remain open at all times.

The existing Government East Parking Garage will remain open until the new Judge Doyle public parking ramp is approved for occupancy. However, access to the existing Government East parking garage will be available only at the East Wilson Street entrance. Following receipt of the necessary documentation that the new Judge Doyle public parking ramp is approved for occupancy, then the demolition of the existing Government East parking garage will start. The demolition is tentatively scheduled for the first quarter of 2019.

The full closure of the 200 block of South Pinckney Street is needed in order to build the new parking garage, which will extend under the street.
