Improved Access from our Parking Lots to the Main Plaza and Academic Buildings
Modifications and repairs to our existing parking lots, pathways, and sidewalks around the campus, expanding access to our Main Plaza and Academic Buildings.
Project Update as of April 5, 2021
Construction continued this Fall with work being finalized in the Central 3 parking lot, new parking being added behind the the Natural Science building, and restoring the loading dock and accessible parking areas at the rear of the Physical Education building.
Additional construction work included a new accessible pathway from the rear entrance of the Physical Education building to the adjoining tennis courts, and repairs to the ramp outside of UPD.
The contractor is currently working on some minor punch-list items that couldn’t be finished until warmer weather and closing out the project.
This multi-phased project will address a number of issues with our existing parking lots, pathways and sidewalks across the campus, between our buildings, the residence halls and apartments, and providing additional accessible parking.
This first phase will focus on a number of areas, including; plaza areas on both sides of the Performing Arts Center and Music building, the PAC Underpass, walkway on the west side of Big Haus that leads from the Main Plaza towards Fort Awesome, bus stop near Humanities building, pathway leading from the north side of the Dance building to the Commons apartments, additional accessible parking spaces near the Museum and Natural Science buildings, and other upgrades to our parking lots.
