Downtown Automated Parking Guidance Systems (APGS)

  • Project typeTraffic and Transportation
  • Completion DateSeptember 30, 2022


Project Description

A camera-based parking guidance system installed at the new California Avenue Parking Garage located at 350 Sherman Avenue will be installed at three downtown parking garages (Garage CW, Garage R and Garage S/L). The parking guidance systems will feature ceiling mounted multi-function camera sensors. Each sensor will capture, monitor, and show the status of up to six parking spaces (three per each side of the parking aisle). Integrated LED indicators in the sensor casing display space availability and the type of parking permitted. The sensors can provide detailed parking reports, audits, and performance analysis to help the Office of Transportation continually enhance parking efficiency. 

Scope of Work

The project consists of the design, procurement, installation and testing of parking guidance systems at three downtown parking garages.

Project Status

The design build contract is expected to be awarded by City Council this Spring/Summer 2021. 

Project Timeline

The project is anticipated to start design in Summer 2021, with installation and project completed expected by Summer 2022.
