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

Construction is expected to start Monday, May 11, and run through Monday, Aug. 17.

The project will include concrete repairs to the floor systems as well as installation of sealants that will require that both ramps be closed during the project, according to Doug Collins, director of grounds and off-site facilities.

“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 stabilize the structures and will continue intermittently this year and next year,” he said. “We thank everyone for their patience so we can take care of the structures.”

Minor repairs to both garages may continue into September, but will not impact opening the ramps for fall semester, which will begin Monday, Aug. 24.

In addition, Lot 2 by the east parking garage will close for resurfacing.
