COLUMBIA — Repairs on the Tenth and Cherry Street garage could cause a short-term inconvenience for patrons.

Construction is scheduled to begin Monday and is estimated to continue through Oct. 31, according to a release from the Columbia Public Works Department. Various entrances and exits will be closed to the public, but the city does not foresee completely blocking off the garage.

The project is estimated to cost $191,000, said Jill Stedem, a spokeswoman for the Columbia Public Works Department, and the funding is coming the Columbia Parking Utility. The construction includes work on the garage's support columns, beams and non-weight-bearing walls.

Drivers who intend on using the garage are encouraged to pay attention to workers and equipment and drive with caution. If drivers enter areas marked as closed or park too close to construction, they might be towed, the release said.

For further questions, call Public Works at 573-874-7250.
