Construction workers are tearing up and rebuilding a section of the parking lot in front of the Menlo Park library to create more parking spaces, and to upgrade spaces for people with disabilities.
The work is expected to continue until early in the week of Jan. 10, according to Engineering Services Manager Lisa Ekers. The city is adding 14 new spaces in order to offset some of the spaces that will be lost during construction of a new gymnasium near the library, and to provide new parking for gym users.
Despite the presence of the construction vehicles, ample parking is still available in the parking lot, Ms. Ekers said.
The city expects to break ground on the new gym Friday, Jan. 8. Part of the southern end of the parking lot will be occupied by construction vehicles while the gym is being built, Ms. Ekers said.
