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 June 07, 2019

The State Construction Fund is finalizing the construction contract and mobilization should begin in the next week. This will require us to shutdown the West 1 parking lot for the summer and shift all visitor parking over to the West 2 parking lot.  Detour signs will be placed to help direct traffic.

Anticipated start of construction is mid-June and will focus on the West 1 parking lot, expanding into the PAC underpass in mid-July and finalizing this summer’s work with areas in West 2 this fall.  Additional construction work will continue next summer and focus on multiple areas across campus.

Project Overview

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.
