Looking ahead into FY2012, the Capitol Hill Master
Plan calls for construction of the South Parking Deck on
the site of the old DOT building. In FY2011, GBA completed
a pre-design study to build the South Parking
Deck and is optimistic the project will begin this year.
The proposed deck, costing an estimated $24 million,
will have 1,200 parking spaces, including designated
legislative and Capitol parking.
Construction of the deck was identified as a top priority
because both the Archives Building and the Capitol
Parking Deck are slated for demolition, meaning GBA
would lose about 2,000 parking spaces for legislators,
State employees and the public.
