Construction squeezes parking

By Reuben Gonzales - Staff Reporter



Ongoing construction on Building 26 will cause parking issues in the month of October.

Concrete trucks are scheduled for Oct. 8,12, 15 and 17. The trucks are scheduled to start ar- riving at 7 a.m. and continue trough to 10 a.m.

Tractor-trailer dump trucks will also be coming throughout the month. Students will need to watch out for flaggers and temporarilly closed areas.

Christina Neville-Neil from Facilities has asked for students to park in the South or East lots to ease the traffic jams and try to plan ahead for this month.

If you can carpool with a friend or co-work- er to ease traffic pain and declutter the parking lot that would be helpful to all, she said.

Everyone is cautioned to not to get too close

to marked of areas for their own safety. Nev- ille-Neil said facilities is aware this impacts parking, but they want to make sure student , staff and faculty safety comes first.

"Forklift drivers are having issues getting to their supplies due to students parking in the gravel area in the western edge of North Lot," Neville-Neil said.

This gravel area in the North Lot should not be used as an overflow, as this has been inter- rupting deliveries and gets in the way of con- struction worker trying to retrieve supplies.

This takes up time for crews and sets back construction times. With a project the size of the Building 26 remodel, a few hours can really mean a lot, Neville-Neil said.
