The new Oak Street parking garage in downtown Roseville is now open and making parking a breeze.
The new parking garage features seven floors and 429 free parking spots. There are nine handicap spots, six electric vehicle spots with chargers, eleven motorcycle spots and a whopping 32 clean-air vehicle/carpool spaces. There are also 24 bicycle spaces. Many exterior improvements have been made also to the Oak Street Parking Garage with many landscaping updates. Also, the pedestrian walkways are wider and there are now streetlights to better illuminate these routes, with additional lighting also on the alley-side exterior of the garage.
There are entry points on Vernon Street and Oak Street and exits onto Lincoln Street and Oak Street. Plus, pedestrians or bicyclists can easily travel from Oak Street to the garage and Vernon Street via elevators, stairwells or the bike ramp, all with the safety of cameras at every entrance and exit and LED lighting throughout the garage.
Overaa & Co., the project contractor, has constructed more than 65 parking garages throughout Northern California, including the most recent garage built at the Roseville Galleria Mall.
The new parking garage is part of an effort to restore downtown Roseville and bring in more people. The construction of the Downtown Bridges & Trail Project is another part of that. When complete, a six-mile trail extension from Sierra College Boulevard to Darling Way will provide a direct connection between Royer Park and the Vernon Street Town Square.
Downtown Roseville is a great place to live and visit, with many new additions to the community on its way. The Oak Street Parking Garage will make parking in downtown easier for years to come with extra parking for pedestrians, bicyclists and electric vehicles.
