Improved Access from our Parking Lots to the Main Plaza and Academic Buildings
Project Update as of October 21, 2019
Construction is underway. The West 1 parking lot is closed. Park-2-Fly has relocated permanently to the West 2 parking lot. Protective fencing is in place and the contractor continues their work, having already removed the existing south concrete island and opening parking lot. They have also replaced the concrete pathways in the PAC underpass and repaved the roadway. Detour signs are in place to help direct traffic.
We anticipated re-opening sections of West 1 in the next few weeks. The entire re-opening of the parking lot will occur next spring due to a collapsed storm line that runs through the middle of the parking lot, which we need to replace.
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.
