The Annex Garage reopens in downtown Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The Annex Garage on East Main Street finally opens after several months of renovations.

The garage closed in November to begin renovations and has caused a parking headache in downtown Lexington for the past several months.

Now known as the 'Helix on Main,' the upgraded garage will come complete with new smart features.

Leaders with the Lexington Parking Authority say it will have sensors that will let you know how many parking spaces are available in the garage.

It will also have reusable tokens instead of paper and new lighting that saves energy.

The upgrade is worth 3 million dollars.

City leaders say parking has been harder to find since the garage has been closed and they hope that today's opening will ease some of those traffic troubles in downtown Lexington.
