The Public Works Headquarters visitor parking lot will be temporarily closed beginning Monday, May 6, through Friday, September 6, 2019 for reconstruction. All visitors should plan to arrive 30 minutes early to find parking, using the following options:

Attendant-Assisted Parking
Attendant-assisted parking will be used to maximize parking space on the second level of the parking structure. When spaces become unavailable in the parking structure, attendants will park vehicles to allow for more parking. At the end of regular business hours, any vehicle keys left with attendant-assisted parking personnel will be returned to Public Works security in the HQ lobby.

ADA Parking (for employees and visitors)
A section of the east side parking lot will be temporarily striped to provide accessible ADA parking spaces during the reconstruction.

County Vehicle Parking
County employees visiting from outside the HQ campus and driving County vehicles will park at the Dynashape Intima parking lot (2121 Orange Street).
