Memorial parkade opening to downtown drivers

The doors are opening to the new Memorial Parkade on Ellis Street.

More than 500 stalls are now available for parking downtown, with the majority available on weekday evenings, and all-day weekends.

Construction on the parkade is still being wrapped up, but it's now contained to the building's exterior, as well as the indoor office space.

There's also work being done on the entrance, which is being restricted to one lane alternating traffic.

This project complements the 197 new stalls that were added in the expansion of the Library parkade.

New technology has been added there, so that you can see how many open spots there are before you drive inside.
