The City hired Walker Restoration Consultants of Boston to conduct a condition assessment of both the Proulx Parking Garage and the Suffolk St. Parking Deck. From that report an estimated $6 Million of necessary repairs were identified. The City Council approved a municipal bond to fund repairs in August, 2011.
Work on the Suffolk Street parking deck began in 2013 and is schedule to be completed by the fall of 2014. Upon completion, it will provide approximately 225 parking spaces for the downtown area.
