Improved Access from our Parking Lots to the Main Plaza and Academic Buildings
Project Update as of August 16, 2019
Construction is underway. The West 1 parking lot is closed with the exception of Park-2-Fly. Park-2-Fly is scheduled to relocate permanently to the West 2 parking lot over the next few weeks. Protective fencing is in place and the contractor has already remove the existing south concrete island and sections of concrete pathways in the PAC underpass. These areas will be receiving new concrete, landscaping, and accessibility features. Detour signs are in place to help direct traffic.
Asphalt removal is scheduled to begin in the next couple of weeks in the West 1 parking lot with an anticipated re-opening of West 1 in October.
Work in the West 2 parking lot will begin this Fall. Additional construction work will continue next summer and focus on multiple areas across campus.
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.
