CONCORD, N.C.– The Cabarrus County Parking Deck in downtown Concord is scheduled to open to the public on Friday, March 1. The parking deck addresses parking demands for courthouse activities, and supports growth and visitors to the area.
The new five-story structure located at 81 Spring St. SW, is a collaborative project with the City of Concord.
The deck has 614 parking spots, 13 of which are handicapped accessible and located near the elevator access points on each floor. Eighty-two parking spots are reserved spaces. Visitors to downtown Concord can access the deck 24-hours a day from entrances on Spring Street and Corban Avenue. Jurors can use the new deck or Surface Lot #2 located on Church Street.
While there is no fee to use the deck initially, Cabarrus does plan to implement a fee schedule in the future.
The parking deck features various security measures for visitors. Stairwell lights will remain on 24 hours a day, while the parking areas feature motion operated LED lights. Blue light emergency phones located at both stairwells on each floor will call 911 when activated.
In the future, the County intends to market the Barbrick Avenue parcel of the Parking Deck for possible retail or residential development.
The project broke ground in January 2018 and took approximately 13 months to complete. Morris Berg Architects and project engineers Kimley-Horn completed the design and provided construction administration of the parking deck. Messer Construction Company built the deck.
An opening celebration is planned for Wednesday, February 27 at 4 p.m. The celebration will take place at the deck entrance on Corban Avenue (across from St. James Lutheran Church).
