Â EL CENTRO – The County of Imperial is announcing the commencement of construction on a major reconfiguration of two existing parking lots which serve the County Administration Center (CAC) in downtown El Centro, located at 940 Main Street.
The project involves permanently closing a section of 9th Street and incorporating the abandoned street section into a new, larger parking area east Â of the Â CAC between Main and Broadway in addition to reconstructing the existing parking lot located at Broadway and 11th Street.
The CAC and all County Departments in the Civic Center area will remain open during this construction. Every effort is being made to accommodate public access to County facilities; however some disruption of traffic and parking will occur.
Construction workÂ for the parking lot project is anticipated to start on November 17th, 2014. The construction schedule will be approximately 120 calendar days.
Two temporary offsite parking lots have been developed at the southwest corner of 8thÂ and State Streets, and additional parking will be available at 12111Â and Broadway Â behind the Wells Fargo Bank. Â In addition, handicap and short-term
parking areas around the CAC will be designated and clearly marked.
The existing property tax payment drop box will be relocated to the CAC front entrance on Main St.
Additional information and maps will be available on the County of Imperial’s website, www.co.imperial.ca.us . Any questions or concerns regarding this project should be directed to the Imperial County Department of Public Works at (760) 482-4462 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
