Existing parking and traffic flow for the Library are not expected to be immediately impacted.
The current east parking lot will be expanded northward toward St. Mary Drive. Parking capacity will increase by 106 spaces, and direct access to St. Mary will be constructed. The second phase of parking expansion is anticipated to occur as part of the Library’s future facility expansion and renovation.
In May 2016, Allen voters approved the issuance of General Obligation Bonds for additional Library parking and up to 45,000 square feet of interior space for Library collections, programs, meetings, and patron seating.
Future parking construction updates will be posted on AllenNews.org.
