The Foothills Campus Parking Lot Paving Replacement and ADA site accessibility project begins on Tuesday July 5. This construction project will include new asphalt parking lots and a new asphalt ring road surrounding the Foothills 0, 1, 2, & 3 buildings. Campus improvements also include upgrades for ADA parking and disabled site access to the buildings.
Construction is scheduled to be completed at the end of September. Construction will be phased in four separate time frames with three of the parking lots remaining open at all times for staff parking.
The safety of our staff and visitors, including cyclists, pedestrians, drivers and the construction crew, is our top priority during this project. Vehicle, cyclist and pedestrian access to the site area of the phase under construction will not be permitted. There will be signs on the building exit doors with direct access to that particular phase, indicating which parking lot will be closed due to a particular phase being under construction. However, emergency access will be maintained. Intermittent closures and interruptions to vehicular and bicycle traffic will occur at times to allow access by construction equipment. At times the access ring road may be limited to one lane only. Please obey all traffic flaggers and associated signage.
Due to the fact that one parking lot will be closed at all times, we strongly recommend employees ride the UCAR/NCAR Shuttle or ride B-Cycles when going to the Foothills campus during construction.
Phase 1 (starting on July 5) encompasses the Southwest Parking Lot, which includes parking on the West side of FL0 and FL3. This entire area will be blocked off for all vehicle / pedestrian / bicycle traffic. Temporary bicycle racks will be located elsewhere near FL3 as the 2 current bicycle racks located West of FL3 will not be accessible during the Phase 1 construction.
Additional information (including a construction phasing and bicycle parking rack map) will be available shortly, along with additional details on all 4 phases of construction.
