Commuter Parking Lot 89 - reconstruct southeast section

Project phase: Archived

The southern portion of Parking Lot 89 was constructed prior to 1970,with an expansion in 2001. The southeast portion of the lot had deteriorated and was slated for reconstruction in the next three to five years. In September 2015, the Board authorized the installation of solar arrays on this lot as part of the Electrical Distribution - Renewable Energy Project. Reconstruction of this portion of the lot was necessary to extend its useful life, and doing so prior to the installation of the solar array allowed for more efficient reconstruction and paving.
