JUNEAU - The public parking lot at the Steamship Wharf downtown on Marine Way will close for the tourist season beginning at 4:30 p.m. Friday, the Juneau Parks and Recreation department announced Tuesday.
Tour companies pay the city a permit fee to use the facility during the cruise season. Buses use the area during the tourist season. Vehicles that remain in the lot after Friday afternoon will be impounded. The department recommends alternative parking sites such as the Marine Park Parking Garage, a lot on Willoughby Avenue, the subport lot on Egan Drive, and the Shopper's Lot located at the corner of Main Street and Egan Drive.
