Phase I of the Motorgate Improvement Project will be starting this week. The scope of work taking place includes:
Repair concrete surfaces to remove cracked, spalled, and delaminated concrete.
Install slip resistant topping coating as needed.
Replace the existing expansion joint material.
Repair & upgrade the existing drainage system.
Apply a waterproofing system on the parking deck, ramps, walkways, and curbs.
Re-stripe the parking spaces and install new wayfinding signage.
Install electric car charging stations.
Sections 3D, 4D, 5D, 6D, 7D & 8D in the south building are now closed to parking. Cars found parked in these sections will be towed. Please note that the rooftop will remain open throughout construction.

RIOC staff has scheduled the work to occur in a way that allows the facility to remain open throughout construction. Work will take place Mondays through Fridays only between the hours of 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM. We do not anticipate night or weekend work to be necessary at this time. If that changes, we will let you know.
Please note that the traffic pattern on the fourth floor of the garage has been changed significantly to accommodate this closure. The below graphic demonstrates the new traffic pattern.
For the safety of all patrons and pedestrians, please drive slowly while in the garage. Adhere to all traffic signs posted throughout the garage and watch for new signage. Please follow the directions of the contractor’s flagman, Public Safety Department, and Motorgate personnel.
We expect Phase I of this important project to be completed in the fall of 2019. Since this kind of work cannot be performed during the winter months, Phase II will begin in spring 2020. All construction is expected to be completed in late 2020.
We appreciate your continued patience and cooperation during this important work.
