Santa Barbara’s City Parking Lot 2 Closed for Construction

Repairs and other work are expected to continue through April

Construction work on the City of Santa Barbara’s downtown Lot 2 parking structure, with entrances on Canon Perdido and Chapala streets, began Monday and is expected to continue for about 60 days, through April.

To ensure public safety, Lot 2 will be closed completely during construction.

Temporary signs will be installed to redirect traffic to neighboring city parking Lots 3, 4, 9 and 10, and the Paseo Nuevo garage. Sufficient parking spaces are available in these lots to compensate for the temporary loss of parking spaces in Lot 2 during construction. While Lot 2 is closed, monthly parking permit holders will be permitted to park in any other available downtown city parking lot.

Repairs are necessary to enhance the seismic stability of the structure and to improve public safety. Construction work involves repairing, reinforcing, and supporting concrete beams, columns and girders, and bringing the handicapped accessible parking spaces into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The city completed similar upgrades to Lot 10 last year during the same time period. The Public Works Department thanks the public in advance for their patience during construction.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
