Lot 6 work set to begin


August 21, 2014
CITY OF GROSSE POINTE — A contractor is primed to reconstruct parking Lot 6 in the Village.

Low-bidder, Nagle Paving, beat a lone competitor for the job.

Work is due to start as soon as possible, according to Gary Huvaere, director of public services in the City of Grosse Pointe.

Lot 6 is located off Kercheval Place, a one-way (west) alley on the south side of Kercheval between Notre Dame and Cadieux.

"Work on this project is intended to start immediately and last approximately eight weeks," Huvaere said. "Existing parkers in Lot 6 will be encouraged to use the parking structure."

Nagle's bid of $435,058 beat the only other rival for the job, Pavex Corp., by $174,126.

Work includes an "extensive" redesign of the lot, according to Peter Dame, city manager.

Upon completion, there will be a total of 39 parking spaces in three rows. All but two spaces are diagonal.

New spaces are being designed wider than in Lot 1, behind Kroger, often criticized as too narrow.

A trash compactor, for nearby businesses, is being installed and screened by a brick enclosure at the rear of the lot.

Lot 6's redesign also features:

• two covered, lighted pay stations with security cameras and payment options for cash or credit cards,

• decorative black fencing along the west side,

• a 4-foot-tall brick wall at the rear,

• lot lights matching decorative streetscape lighting on Kercheval and

• improved drainage.
