LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The future of parking in La Crosse will be the focus of an upcoming study.
The $100,000 study updates 2009 and 2014 studies of parking in La Crosse's downtown.
Three new areas will be the focus for the study.
One covers the streets around Mayo Clinic and Gundersen Health Systems.
Another is the area around U-W La Crosse and Western Technical College.
And lastly, a northside area, centered around businesses on Caledonia Street.
The hope is to have answers for the problems of the future.
"Where should we be headed, you know driverless cars, wireless technology, where are we headed, how is that going to affect us, so we can get a footprint ready for the future," said Jim Flottmeyer, La Crosse Parking Utility Coordinator.
The study is expected to begin this summer.
