Looks like downtown Rock Island is about to get a bit of a facelift.

According to a recent press release, "demolition of the downtown parking garage located at 16th Street and 3rd Avenue is scheduled to begin on Monday, November 28th. The parking garage will be closed to all users starting Sunday, November 27th at 3:00 p.m. Vehicles remaining inside the parking garage after November 27th will be removed at the owner's expense.

The scheduled completion date for the new parking lot is June 15, 2023. The City of
Rock Island appreciates your patience while the construction is ongoing and
understands that temporary parking will be difficult due to the demolition. For additional
parking options in the downtown please go to the City website at rigov.org/parking.

The new parking lot will have 230 parking stalls available and will include interior and
exterior decorative streetlights, streetscaping features including trees, landscaping,
trash receptacles and benches. The parking lot will also include EV charging stations for
electric vehicles."
