Unless they're doing very basic prep work for a couple months before demolition can begin in earnest.

The new garage is under construction, and parking garages are mostly prefab and go up fast, but still...
3/4 of the new Parking Garage is scheduled to be completed by December 2019 and open for MMC Employees at that time. The other 1/4 of the Garage is scheduled for completion Spring 2020.
Press Herald article from Sept. 11, 2018 says that when the new parking garage on St. John Street is complete the old parking garage on Congress Street will be demolished so that construction can begin on the new Medical Center Congress Street addition.
