The first phase of Allen Public Library’s parking expansion is scheduled to begin Wednesday, July 5. Existing parking and traffic flow are not expected to be immediately impacted.
The current east parking lot will be expanded north toward St. Mary Drive. The expansion will add 106 spaces and allow direct access to St. Mary Drive. The second phase of the parking expansion is expected 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 updates will be posted on AllenNews.org.
