The city shuttered the decrepit Queensboro Hall municipal parking garage a week early on Wednesday after tagging the half-century-old structure a safety hazard.
But local leaders said the Department of Transportation has no concrete plan to accommodate hundreds of people — including jurors and court personnel — who use the roughly 500-space facility every day.
Workers handed out flyers to confused drivers Wednesday, outlining nearby private garages and bus routes.
The lot serves both Borough Hall and the Queens Criminal Court facilities in Kew Gardens.
Transportation officials originally planned to close it Oct. 1 but announced late Tuesday it would shutter the next day.
“This came fast,” said Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, who fears frustrated drivers will spend hours circling nearby streets, adding heavy traffic around nearby Public School 99.
“What we need right now is for the city to give us alternatives where people can park,” she said.
One of those options could be to shuttle people from Flushing Meadows-Corona Park and nearby colleges, Katz said.
The borough’s criminal justice system is also expected to take a big hit, a spokesman for District Attorney Richard Brown said.
“The garage’s closing will be extremely burdensome on crime victims, witnesses, jurors and defendants, as well as the surrounding neighborhood,” he said.
