A new paint job is in progress at one downtown La Crosse parking ramp. 

The Main Street ramp is being decorated with very tall wild flowers, as part of a project recently approved by city committees.

Viroqua artist Natalie Hinahara designed the mural, which will be approximately 8 feet wide and 50 feet tall on the 3rd Street entrance to the parking deck. 

The project cost $6,572.

The same ramp also displays the “Helping Hands” mural at the corner of 3rd and State.
