There will be construction at the 710 Albany Street Parking Garage roof and 6th floor starting Sept. 29, which is anticipated to continue through to Friday, Oct. 8. The scope of this project requires that 6th and 7th floors of garage be closed to all vehicles, and will affect garage capacity. Please be advised that this may cause delays and closures while we complete this necessary work, especially during peak hours.
