RIOC President/CEO Susan Rosenthal's broad commitment to fixing neglected infrastructure on Roosevelt Island gets a big and practical boost with the start of work on the Motorgate Parking Garage.

Tuesday, April 30th, RIOC announced a contractor had been "selected to complete improvements in the Motorgate garage that will address deficiencies in the space."

With the project expected to begin in May, RIOC listed these objectives: 

  • Repair concrete surfaces to remove cracked, spalled and delaminated concrete. Install slip resistant topping coating as needed.
  • Replace the existing expansion joint material.
  • Repair & upgrade the existing drainage system.
  • Apply a waterproofing system on the parking deck, ramps, walkways, and curbs.
  • Restripe the parking spaces and install new wayfinding signage.
  • Install electric car charging stations.

The work will be done in two phases running from spring through fall, this year and next, although specific dates were not yet available.

RIOC's notice said that relocation of assigned parking spots will be necessary and that monthly patrons will soon be notified by garage management about necessary changes.

The State agency also requests your cooperation and patience as efforts will be made to limit inevitable inconveniences.
