South Campus Ramp, Drive Aisle to Close Wednesday for Three Weeks
The Anderson Parking Facility will close for three weeks and no vehicles will be allowed to drive into the south campus at Cretin and Grand avenues beginning Wednesday, July 30.
The restrictions will allow Ryan Companies to rebuild the drive from Cretin to the parking ramp entrance and construct an east-west sidewalk along the south side of the greenhouse. The goal of rebuilding the drive is to eliminate the dip in the grade at Cretin and improve drainage at the intersection.
Floors in the parking ramp also will be resealed during the three-week period. All vehicles must be moved out of ramp by 5 p.m. Tuesday.
The only access to the south campus will be off Summit Avenue, between Loras Hall and the St. Paul Seminary, and employees and guests who have been using the ramp will need to find other locations to park.
Lots M and O generally will be available, with Lot M unavailable until 10 a.m. Mondays and on Saturdays to accommodate an organization that has contracted for use of the lot. Parking will be free in level R-2 and R-3 of the Morrison Residence Hall ramp.
Lots P, X and Y on the south campus will continue to be restricted for use by the seminary, and vehicles without permits for those lots will be ticketed.
Employees also may want to consider using other forms of transportation including Metro Transit, bicycles, or car pooling.
The projects are related to Facilities and Design Center construction, which began March 31. The $6.5 million, 32,000-square-foot building will completed by September, serving as the home for central receiving, recycling, and equipment maintenance and storage operations as well as providing additional laboratory space for the School of Engineering.
