Marine Park Plaza to close to parking in downtown

    The last day to park at the Marine Park Plaza is Friday, April 24.

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Seasonal parking at the Marine Park Plaza is coming to an end. The last day to park in the plaza is Friday, April 24. Docks and Harbors personnel will block off access to the Plaza on Saturday, April 25.

    According the City & Borough of Juneau, any vehicles remaining in the Plaza after midnight on Friday will be subject to impound at the owner’s expense.

    CBJ Manager Rorie Watt said there are several reasons for the change.

    "Due to Egan Drive construction, buses will be unable to access the Downtown Transit Center," Watt said. "Transit is moving their break room facilities to the Downtown Library, and they need to park their buses in the brickyard. And Docks & Harbors needs to clean up the parking lot... [the landscapers] needs to clean up the planters, and reset and replant the barrels. Plus, there’s tons of space in the Marine Parking Garage."

    Parking at the Marine Parking Garage is available for permit holders who have been parking in the Plaza.

    Spaces 5 through 25 in the garage are reserved for hourly parking, and permit parking is available in spaces 26 and higher.
