Clarksville, Tennessee (WKRN) — The Cumberland Plaza garage in downtown Clarksville was closed due to inspections finding “potential structural damage,” a city spokesman said Wednesday.
Richard Stevens, the city’s communications director, said TRC Worldwide Engineering visited a parking lot on Commerce Street on Monday afternoon and began preparing proposals for structural evaluation.
During the visit, Stevens stated that the TRC observed severe cracks in the concrete slab on the pillars at the top of the slab and cracks at the bottom of the slab in the middle of the span in both directions.
“Based on the observations made on Monday, we believe that the garage cannot be safely occupied and we need to evacuate immediately,” the TRC said in a letter to the city’s project manager.
Those who rent 262 parking spaces must park in the parking lot of First Baptist Church on Franklin, Hitter and Commerce Streets.
The Clarksville Transit System provides a downtown shuttle bus service to transport commuters from the First Baptist compartment to downtown destinations such as the Court Complex, government offices and businesses.
The city said the ground parking lot, opposite Second Street, opposite the courthouse, is still in use.
