Beginning March 1 and through June, access to the Palo Alto Art Center will be reduced due to construction going on in the Main Library, staff announced Tuesday.
The Art Center's main entrance and the driveway in front of the main entrance will be closed. The only available entrances will be on the Newell Road side of the building, or through the Sculpture Garden in the back.
Parking will still be available in a rear parking lot along Embarcadero Road and at another lot on the corner of Newell and Hopkins. Short-term, 15-minute parking is available at the Newell side of the building as well.
The Main Library renovation began last April and includes the construction of a new wing with a program room, restrooms and storage spaces on the south side of the branch; a new entrance lobby; four glass-walled study rooms; upgrades to heating, cooling and electrical systems; and a host of landscaping and roadway changes.
