Construction begins on library parking lot
Work is underway on the expansion to the Estacada Public Library's parking lot.
CivilWorks NW Inc. started the project last month. The expansion is adjacent to the existing lot and will more than double the amount of parking spaces. The update will also bring charging stations for electric vehicles.
The parking lot expansion is expected to be complete in June.
Estacada Public Library Director Michele Kinnamon is looking forward to the finished project. She noted that a larger parking lot has been a part of the library's strategic plan since 2008.
"There will be room for everybody," Kinnamon wrote in an email. "Soon, we will be able to fit all our patrons, plus patrons and visitors here for summer reading events, parties, meetings, classes and other library events."
