Area's of Work- South Portion of the Motorgate Parking Garage
3rd Floor over Gristedes and Bus Garage
3rd Floor - Sections 3B, 3C, 3D and 4A part
4th Floor - 4C only

Lighting- All lighting throughout Motorgate will be replaced with new LED light fixtures.

Expected Completion Dates-

- Waterproofing, striping and lighting upgrade on Level 3 - April 1, 2013
- Lighting upgrade throughout Motorgate - August 31, 2013

We appreciate your cooperation and patience during this project.
