underground level served from a private entrance on 6th Street that are not included in the scope of services. The
Garage is open to the public to park or retrieve a vehicle 24 hours per day, 365 days a year.
The Garage is operated as a standard pay on foot ticketed facility with two lanes in and three lanes out. All the lanes
are gated. The gates are down 24/7 on both the entrance and exit lanes. All the exit lanes have pay on exit pay
