Work continues to move forward at the Diagnostic Medicine Center on schedule, while Colorado State University recently announced a set of new construction projects that will begin this summer. The Main Campus will undergo significant transformation with the launch of eight major construction projects to enhance the campus and its learning, teaching and research environment.
"We want to alert our campus community that there will be short-term difficulties with parking and driving around campus over the next 24 months - and some of the pretty parts of campus won't be so pretty for a while - but the situation is only temporary," said Colorado State's Facilities Management Director Brian Chase.
Projects slated for construction in the next 18-24 months include a new residence hall connected to the Academic Village, an addition to the Music Building on the Oval, an addition to Rockwell Hall for the College of Business, an Academic Instruction Building, an indoor athletics practice facility, expansion of the existing Campus Recreation Center, a new athletics academic and training building, and a parking garage. The parking garage is slated for construction beginning late summer or early fall and will be on the southeast corner of Lake and Center Streets, bordered on the south by Prospect. The garage will be built on south end of the existing surface parking lot.
The construction will cause temporary disruption in parking until the parking garage is completed because several building sites are on current parking lots. During the summer session, in particular, students, faculty and staff are encouraged to consider alternative transportation options such as taking the bus, riding their bikes or carpooling to avoid parking frustrations.
Progress updates on construction projects and their impact on parking will be available at Today@ColoradoState, on the University's Facilities Management Web site at www.facilities.colostate.edu and on the Parking Services Web site at www.parking.colostate.edu.
