Work on one of downtown Plymouth's most important pieces of infrastructure is getting ready to start as early as next week.
The city expects to choose a contractor to renovate the dual-level parking deck this week. The project, originally budgeted for $200,000, is estimated to cost $150,000. It will include recoating, redoing seals and joints and repairing cement. The stair tower will also be painted and the heating pipes insulated to help save energy.
"Since the contractor is here, it's cheaper to do it now," says John Buzuvis, assistant director of operations for the city of Plymouth.
The deck, built in 1983, is located behind the commercial storefronts of the square block that is bordered by Main Street, Penniman Avenue, Ann Arbor Trail, and South Harvey Street, a stone's throw from Kellogg Park.
