ATTLEBORO — A contractor hired to make repairs to the city’s parking garage on Sanford Street could get authorization to start work by Friday.

“The plan right now is to give the contractor the green light by the end of this week,” Barry LaCasse, the city’s director of budget and administration, said Monday.

The garage has been closed since June 1 in anticipation of the job, which includes repairs to the concrete as well as drainage and joint systems. Cost of the project is $475,000.

LaCasse said a contract with Contracting Specialists Inc. of Attleboro is in the process of being signed.

Once the city gives CSI the “notice to proceed” it will have 56 days to finish the job, which officials expect to happen by Aug. 10.

In the meantime, the city is trimming trees next to the garage and making arrangements for the parking spaces to be re-striped and cracks in the pavement to be sealed, LaCasse said.

While the parking garage is closed, city-owned parking lots on Bank Street, Sanford Street and North Main Street may be used by customers displaying a valid monthly/quarterly parking pass.
