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 September 22, 2020

Construction continued this summer. The West 1 parking lot is partially open.  Park-2-Fly has relocated permanently to the West 2 parking lot.  The contractor has completed replacement of a damaged underground stormwater line in West 1, and is finalizing work in the West 1. West 2 is open for use.

They have also finalized the new stairs and ramp at The Commons, and continuing work on 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.  New parking is also being added behind the Museum.

Additional construction work will continue this fall and focus on multiple areas across campus including, new parking near the Natural Science building, and a new rear entrance to the Physical Education buildings and adjoining tennis courts.

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.
