COLUMBIA — Cleaning will begin 6 a.m. Monday on the parking garage at Tenth and Cherry streets, the Columbia Public Works Department said Wednesday.

Crews from the city's parking utility will clean the garage one level at a time, beginning with the top level, Public Works spokeswoman Jill Stedem said. Each level will be closed as it is cleaned, with the other levels remaining open.

"Crews will be scrubbing and washing down the garage in preparation for resealing it later this summer," Stedem said.

She said other work will include repainting lines and arrows that need it.

The work is expected to take about a week.

In the meantime, people with permits for that garage can park in the hourly spaces at the Fifth and Walnut streets and Sixth and Cherry streets garages, but they must display their Tenth-and-Cherry hang tags.

Stedem said this is the third of the five city garages to be cleaned. The garages at Eighth and Walnut streets and Sixth and Cherry streets also have been cleaned.
