New public parking added to Downtown Eau Claire

Posted June 17th, 2014

You may have noticed land being torn up at the corner of Forest and Madison Streets in the Downtown area over the last couple of weeks. The City of Eau Claire is building a new public parking lot. This week, the main contractor Haas Sons, Inc., and other crews have been working on a concrete trail and electrical conduit. Today and tomorrow they'll be putting in concrete light bases. If the weather hasn't delayed plans, they plan to pave the lot and alley on Tuesday. The pavement could be marked at the end of next week. The lot would be open to the public for use sometime after the stalls are painted next Friday.
