The ceiling of a parking garage, which collapsed late March in downtown Prince Albert, left no structural damage, according to city officials.

“They reviewed the damage to see if there was a structural issue; there wasn’t,” Kim Johnson, the city’s chief building official, said.

Johnson didn’t offer any hints as to what might have caused the ceiling to collapse; investigators were more concerned with possible structural damage to 25 11th St. E. The collapse caused minor damage to vehicles parked in the garage-like structure, though there were no injuries.  

The collapse was fairly minor, Johnson said, and crews are now working to get the structure back up to code. Minor repairs are now being conducted on the parking garage, and barricades were set up blocking access to the alley where the garage is located.
