DALLAS (CBSDFW) – While parking woes for hundreds of Dallas residents continue two weeks after the parking garage collapse at the Renaissance on Turtle Creek, a temporary solution may be just days away.
Crews installed lights inside a nearby unused office parking garage. By Wednesday residents will have access to the garage located just a few blocks away from their condos.
This weekend, the City of Dallas relaxed on parking rules in some areas and even blocked a lane on Turtle Creek to provide extra parking spots for residents. This comes just days after residents complained about receiving parking tickets in the area.
“It’s an inconvenience,” said Trish Luber whose car is one of nearly 200 undamaged but trapped inside the partially collapsed garage.
Luber said even with the city relaxing parking rules in some no parking area, finding an open parking spot has been difficult at times.
Luber said, “You’re circling around the block for 15 to 30 minutes sometimes looking for a spot.”
Engineers will be back out Monday surveying the damage. It’s still un clear whether the partially collapsed garage can be repair or if it will have to be demolished.
