Parking Expanded at Intermodal Parking Facility in Millwork District
Transportation Services Director
April 17, 2018 -- For Immediate Release
DUBUQUE, Iowa – The City of Dubuque’s Intermodal Parking Facility at 351 E. Ninth St. in the Millwork District has an additional 82 parking spaces on the facility’s second level available for general public use.
The expansion of general public parking follows the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Transportation Administration’s (FTA) approval of the City’s request. The parking facility was built with an approved shared use of 200 locally funded general parking spaces and 92 “Park + Ride” FTA-funded spaces for transit users. Usage of the transit-funded spaces was monitored for their intended use. The facility has been in operation since August 2015 and did not have more than five Park + Ride spaces leased and no daily Park + Ride parking passes utilized as bus passes.
Based on this level of utilization and having a waiting list for the general parking spaces ramp, the City requested and received permission to reassign 82 of the 92 spaces for general public use. Based on current demand, the City estimates that reserving 10 spaces for transit-related use would be adequate for the next five years.
Monthly permit parking in the ramp is currently priced at $57/space/month. The ramp will be changed to “unreserved parking” with roof gates removed and one price charged for all spaces. A portion of spaces on the first level will continue to be marked “short-term parking only” for customers of Millwork District businesses. The ramp has automated cashier equipment. The non-permit parking rate is a flat $1 per hour with a daily maximum of $10. Visa, Mastercard, and Discover are accepted in addition to cash.
To purchase a permit or for additional information, contact the City of Dubuque Transportation Services Department at 563.589.4266 or visit www.cityofdubuque.org/parking.
