At 5 p.m. today, August 14, the parking lot North of the old Athletic Triplex will be closed, until further notice. This will allow fencing to be installed around the construction area of the new Integrated Health Sciences Building. To offset the loss of Faculty/Staff parking and disabled spaces in this area, UCA will be adding additional Faculty/Staff and disabled spaces in the overflow parking area north of Thompson Hall. Later in the fall, the southern end of Western Ave. will have gravel parking spaces available for use.
In addition, Conway Corporation is conducting utility work along Donaghey Ave. and Bruce Street. Some of this is related to our construction projects and some is related to their own infrastructure improvements. Due to this, Donaghey and Bruce may at times be inaccessible or have temporary road closures. We want to ensure that the campus is fully aware of this when it happens. While no exact dates have been set at this time, we will let you know as soon as we have additional details. Shuttle routes will also be updated as construction dates are known, and we will communicate about those as well.
