Improved Access from our Parking Lots to the Main Plaza and Academic Buildings
Project Update as of June 29, 2020
Construction is underway. The West 1 parking lot is partially open. Park-2-Fly has relocated permanently to the West 2 parking lot. The contractor continues to focus on the replacement of a damaged underground stormwater line in West 1 and has the West 2 concrete island restoration and adjoining parking spaces and road. Detour signs are in place to help direct traffic.
They have also begun work near the Commons (replacing an old ramp and stairs) and are finishing their work on the East Loop road next to the Physical Education building.
Next they will focus on the ramp in front of University Police and begin work at the Central 3 parking lot. This includes re-doing the long pathway next to Big Haus that leads up to the Main Plaza, The bus stop next to Humanities and the entrance path into Humanities.
Additional construction work will continue this summer and focus on multiple areas across campus, including new parking behind the Museum and Natural science buildings, and new rear entrance to the Physical Education buildings and adjoining tennis courts.
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.
