Parking lot closures

Beginning Saturday, April 16, the parking lots of buildings 212, 402 and 137 will be closed due to the Phase One construction project of car ports with solar panels. All privately and government owned vehicles must be removed before midnight April 15. Any vehicle that is not removed by this date will be summonsed and towed at the owner's expense. The project will be ongoing for a couple of months and a completion date will be announced. Prior to closing, gravel will be added between building 113 and 107 on White Avenue to create a alternate parking lot.
