Long Awaited Downtown Parking Arrives
Saratoga Springs, NY – Mayor Scott Johnson announces the new Woodlawn Avenue Parking Garage will open for public use on Friday, July 20, at 3pm. The garage is substantially complete, enough to now allow parking on 3 of the 4 levels. The top level is expected to be completed soon. Upon total completion, there will be a ceremony and ribbon cutting to celebrate. Earlier this year, the City Council voted unanimously to award the construction contract to BCI, Inc. From the outset, the goal was to have the garage open in time for the racing season. This project is the result of a public-private partnership announced last August between City leaders and a wide range of local economic development organizations.

The new parking garage and surface lot accommodates 454 parking spaces, compared to the 147 previously in the former parking lot. This is the third parking deck to be built Downtown, but the first in more than a decade and by far the largest of all three.

“I’m both pleased and proud to now announce the opening of our new parking garage, which is a testament to how a bipartisan public-private partnership works for everyone”, said Mayor Johnson. “Equally important, the garage is on time and on budget. Finally, nobody can now say there isn’t enough Downtown parking, either in reality or perception.”
