Changes to downtown Brampton parking; garage undergoing infrastructure repairs
Published July 15, 2021 at 8:19 pm
According to the Downtown Brampton BIA, the City will continue to offer “loading zones” as dual purpose curbside pickup areas for businesses, as the Province moves to Step 3 of reopening at midnight.
All other on-street parking areas on Queen Street (Theatre Lane to George Street), Main Street (John Street to Theatre Lane) and George Street (Queen Street to Wellington Street) will be returning to regular parking zones in preparation for customers returning to shop in local businesses. At this time, all parking will remain complimentary.
The BIA also provided an update on the John Street Parking Garage, 16 John St.
Repairs on the structure have just begun and are expected to take about eight months. The Region of Peel determined the infrastructure repairs were necessary to resolve drainage and water penetration issues.
The project will be broken down into three phases, moving from the bottom levels of the parking structure upwards.
During phases one and two, portions of the garage will be closed, limiting its capacity. To complete resurfacing work, the garage will be fully closed during Phase 3 from Feb. to March, 2022. During Phase 3, garage users will be able to access on-street parking or alternate parking garages, while following existing duration and time of day restrictions.
In addition, alternate parking garages are located at:
- City Hall Garage – 2 Wellington Street West
- West Tower Garage – 20 George Street South
- Market Square Garage – 1 Theatre Lane
- Nelson Square Garage – 20 Diplock Lane
Communications will be posted on the City website as well as on-site to inform all garage users. Direct correspondence will be provided to all current transponder holders to make sure that they are aware of alternate parking locations.
All parking will remain complimentary during the construction work, with no additional costs to residents and public users.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
