Demolition of the main Framingham Library garage continued Wednesday.
Demolition of the main library's garage continued Wednesday. Demolition began on April 1 and was scheduled to last about two weeks. Parking is at a premium, while the garage is being demolished and during the new construction phase. In October 2012, Town Meeting members agreed to tear down the crumbling Framingham Library parking garage on Lexington Street. Town Meeting agreed to demolish the three-tier parking garage adjacent to the public library and creating a surface parking lot. The project will cost an estimated $935,000. There will be more parking spaces after the projects is completed than there were in the current garage, said the library.
