On Sunday, May 14, phased closings of the Hall County Government Center parking lots and access drives will begin to complete critical maintenance and upgrades.
“We appreciate our citizens’, visitors’ and employees’ patience during the phased closings of the Government Center parking lots,” said Casey Ramsey, Assistant County Administrator. “The upgrades and maintenance being completed during these closures will ensure a safer and more efficient parking experience for everyone.”
The first phase of the project will involve the closure of the three parking lots to the northwest of the Government Center, including the closure of the access road from Free Chapel and the rear building access drive. During Phase I, visitors to the Government Center will need to access parking by the main entrance on Browns Bridge Road and use the parking lots to the east of the Government Center, nearest the Hall County Sheriff’s Office Headquarters. Digital message boards will be posted to guide the public.
The second phase will involve the closure of the upper two lots to the northwest of the Sheriff’s Office, while the third phase will close the lower two lots. Each phase is expected to take approximately one week, and visitors will need to park in the lots not under active construction.
The fourth and final phase will take place on a Saturday to repave the traffic circle. Please note there will be no access to parking at the Government Center during the final phase. The project is expected to take a total of four weeks with completion slated for June 12, weather permitting.
“By phasing the project, we’re able to minimize the inconvenience of closing parking areas while enhancing the overall safety, efficiency and appearance of the Government Center, and we appreciate the Board of Commissioners’ commitment to maintaining and improving County buildings and visitor experiences,” said Bill Nash, Hall County Public Works and Utilities director.
The Hall County Government Center is located at 2875 Browns Bridge Road in Gainesville.
The scope of work includes milling, patching, paving, striping, and installing speed tables to replace existing speed bumps, with funding coming from SPLOST VIII. For more information about the phased closings and updates on progress, please visit hallcounty.org.
