Sirocco LRT Parking
Have you noticed construction signs at the Sirocco LRT parking
lot? With long waiting lists, parking in Ward 6 Park and Ride lots can be
scarce at both the Sirocco and 69 Street LRT stations. Working with administration to address parking
constraints, we were able to rearrange drive lanes to add an addition to the
Sirocco parking lot. This summer and until the end of the year, The City will
be constructing an expansion to the Park and Ride lot at Sirocco LRT Station,
adding 71 new parking stalls.
project will involve:
replacement and curb work,
utility work, and
• fencing and
landscaping along the property line with Milestone Condominiums.
Construction will occur within a defined, fenced-in staging
area. Construction noise for the parking lot should be minimal with work taking
place between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. Part of construction
includes the installation of a wooden fence and landscaping adjacent to the
Milestone Condominium complex to shield residents from car headlights and to
provide a buffer between the two properties.
Disruption to the existing parking stalls will be minimized
to approximately 34 current stalls to accommodate the adjustment of the current
drive lane to parking stalls; these spaces will be temporarily out of service
during construction. Main traffic will be adjusted to its new route along the
south edge of the lot prior to adjustment of the current drive lane.
Anticipated completion is expected by the end of 2016, at
which time current Park and Ride Parking Policy will be maintained until new
policy is established, which will not be until 2018. Presently there are 182
reserved stalls and 183 free stalls at the Sirocco station and the new stalls
will also be divided evenly between reserved and free. The additional 71 stalls
will bring the total number of parking stalls at this location to 436. Please visit
