Brockton: Downtown garage undergoing renovation

Brockton’s downtown parking garage is undergoing a nearly $1.5 million makeover.

It’s the first major renovation to the 30-year-old James J. Adams Garage on Crescent St.

The work is being funded through a federal H.U.D. loan, and includes rebuilding four stairwells, repairing some joints and fixing chipped concrete.

The Brockton Parking Authority says the garage is usually about 75-percent full, and making repairs is far cheaper than the approximately $15 million cost of a building a new garage.

The building has seen much better days; two stairwells were closed in recent years because of concerns about falling concrete.

The renovations are expected to be finished by October.
