State Street Garage work wrapping up

Work on Knoxville’s State Street Parking Garage is nearing the end. Roads are opening back up, and the precast concrete appears to be in place. Now it’s up to finishing work, 2according to our favorite anthropomorphized city structure’s blog. This is from last week, but still relevant, I’d say (emphasis added):

One lane of S. Central Street will be closed some time soon for a few days to install a storm system and other temporary closures are still possible while we finish this project. This is particularly true for State Street as we plan to rebuild the sidewalk there and relocate the trash enclosure. The frame for the roof to be installed on the overpass is in place and the handrail will be installed soon. A small crane will be used to lift the glass roof sections into place in the next few weeks. Much of the parking area has been restored in the garage at this point. The upper deck and the new deck are still closed off while we finish the detail work there.
