Construction has started at Kal Tire Place, adjacent to 43rd Avenue, to create 29 regular parking stalls and 13 handicapped stalls.
The work is expected to be done by the end of April, weather permitting, prior to excavation work beginning in the north parking lot.
The new parking area is part of the project to add a second ice sheet.
The existing 13 handicapped parking stalls on the east side of the access road will be relocated closer to the building.
The location where the handicapped stalls are presently marked will be repainted as 19 regular parking stalls, resulting in 48 new stalls.
