Garage closings for Co-op City
(08/03/03) Co-op City - In the next two weeks, four parking garages in Co-op City will close due to emergency repairs. With just one day before the closures begin, officials say they've created a plan that accounts for every displaced driver.
The evacuations will take place until August 21, when the last garage closes. There will be temporary parking in lots, shopping centers and on Bronx streets.
Officials said not all of the temporary parking is ready, but they believe that as the need grows so will the number of available spots.
To help residents, a shuttle will be provided every half hour from the Bay Plaza Shopping Center to the various parking locations.
