Demolition Begins for Downtown RI Parking Garage
Demolition of the parking garage in downtown Rock Island is scheduled to start Monday. Located at 16th Street and 3rd Avenue, the city closed it Sunday afternoon.
Once it's torn down, the lot will be used for a surface parking lot.
The new parking lot will have 230 parking stalls available and will include decorative streetlights, landscaping, trash receptacles, and benches. The parking lot will also include EV charging stations for electric vehicles.
Completion is expected in mid-June.
