Heavy ice will keep the parking garage at 5th and Main streets in MainStrasse Village closed all weekend.
COVINGTON, Ky. - The garage in MainStrasse Village that has been allowing free parking overnight on a temporary basis will be closed through the weekend because of public safety concerns related to heavy ice.
The garage will eventually serve as the foundation of the RiverHaus multi-use complex, which is still under construction. Developer Flaherty & Collins Properties said ice patches that have built up on the floor of the garage have caused slips and falls to workers, and it doesn’t want to risk the public’s safety.
The developer worked out an agreement with the City of Covington last November to allow free parking on a temporary basis during evening hours after construction for the day was finished.
But heavy rain last week and the frigid temperatures that followed have interfered with that plan.
On-street and valet parking in the Village is available, as well as free parking after 5:30 p.m. weekdays and all day on Saturday and Sunday in the IRS lot at Fourth and Johnson streets.
