Parkade upgrades fall 2022

Upgrades are underway at the Market Centre Parkade . A new gate arm control system is being installed and the existing fire alarm system is being repaired. While the Parkade will remain open while work is completed, some areas of the Parkade will be unavailable to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Work is expected to be completed in spring 2023. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to make these improvements.
