The top level of the East Parking Ramp will reopen Monday, Feb. 3, following the completion of emergency structural repairs.
“We appreciate the patience and understanding of our UT students and employees as we made these emergency repairs,” said Daniel Klett, university architect in Facilities and Construction. “The parking ramp closures were a necessary inconvenience to ensure the safety of the UT community and campus visitors.”
Ongoing maintenance and repair work will continue in the parking ramps. Those using the structures are reminded to be careful when walking or driving near areas where repair work is taking place and to never cross the barricades around construction zones.
The University has worked on portions of both parking garages beginning in September when contractors conducting inspections as part of scheduled maintenance discovered the need for emergency repairs. Temporary emergency measures were implemented immediately and resulted in partial closures for the remainder of fall semester.
The West Parking Ramp and the lower three levels of the East Parking Ramp opened Jan. 6 while the top level remained closed for needed repairs.
