Alternate Race Parking

The State Street Parking Deck is the closest deck to Lock 3.  Most likely there will be a concert and/or baseball game going on Friday evening, July 7.  If this is the case, the State Street parking deck may be full Friday evening causing problems with Friday evening packet pick up.  Alternate parking is available in the Cascade Parking Deck.  This parking deck is a little confusing to navigate, but still conveniently close to Lock 3.  When you enter this parking deck, proceed straight ahead up a small ramp.  At the top of the ramp, to your left, will be the Orange Section, Level 2 visitor’s parking.  You may park anywhere on Level 2 but be sure to look for the sliding glass doors after you park your vehicle.  These doors will lead you outside to Lock 3.
