There is a large parking lot behind One Capitol Hill, accessible from Park Street or State Street, but the gates do not go up until after 2:30pm. If you can get into the parking lot choose wherever there is an available spot but be sure to park "within the lines", or you may get ticketed or towed. A better bet is to use metered on-street parking, now configured for coins or credit/debit cards. Spots are available on Park, State, or Smith Streets. For longer term parking consider using the lots at Providence Place Mall.

Parking for People with Disabilities:

All parking for people with disabilities is in the garage under the building. The entrance ramp goes from the parking lot towards the building. Use the intercom button to contact the Capitol Police, who will open the gate, and follow the signs to the handicapped parking near the garage elevators. Take the elevator to the Ground or first floor, and then transfer to the building elevator to reach other floors. The gate will open automatically when exiting the garage.
