Bangor Garage Shutdown 

Starting Monday, a parking garage in downtown Bangor will be out of service for a while.The lot on the corner of Columbia and Hammond Streets is going to be torn down and rebuilt over the summer.The parking garage was built in the 1970’s and officials say it has reached the end of its lifespan.The city determined it would cost less to rebuild the structure than it would to repair the existing one.The garage will be closed until sometime in October.For a short time during the beginning of the project drivers won’t be able to access Columbia street from Hammond: they’ll be detoured to Cross Street, which connects to Columbia.
