COVINGTON, Ky. — A sweet deal on parking at a northern Kentucky construction site is coming to a close.

The general public will begin paying for parking at the RiverHaus project site next Thursday, according to a news release.

A temporary agreement between the city and the developer, Flaherty & Collins Properties, allowed for free parking on evenings and weekends at the construction site. The agreement lasted eight months longer than expected, the release said.

Construction is winding to a close on the $50 million luxury apartment and retail project so drivers will have to start paying a flat rate of $5 (for up to 12 hours) to park in the garage.

For now, drivers can park in the garage from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Saturday, and all day Sunday, according to the release.

The garage is expected to be complete in November. Parking for special events, like Bengals games, will cost $10.

RiverHaus is located at the corner of 5th and Main streets. It will add about 190 apartments, retail space and the parking garage to MainStrasse Village.

Free parking at the site started in late 2018 at the start of the holiday shopping season at the request of the city of Covington.

Note: The garage may not be accessible for the next couple of nights (starting Sept. 13) until 8 p.m. or 9 p.m. due to workers power-washing the garage.
