Restoration work is scheduled for the Main Campus east and west parking garages, which are slated to close from May to early July.

The annual construction project is expected to start Monday, May 7, and run through Friday, July 6. 

If works stays on schedule, the garages will open the week of July 9, according to Doug Collins, director of grounds and off-site facilities. 

The project will include concrete repairs to the floor systems, as well as installation of sealants, that will require both ramps be closed during the project, according to Collins.

“The main scope of the work will be installing supplemental horizontal reinforcement,” Collins said. “Other repairs, such as floor patching and caulking replacement, will be done to address maintenance issues that arise due to the winter months.

“All of this work is part of our program to maintain the structures,” he added. “We thank everyone for their patience so we can take care of the structures.”
