Construction planned to start November 1, and finish by the start of fall 2014
LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) — UL's plans to build a parking tower on campus has just been approved. This parking tower will hold 1,150 cars, 700 with permit and the other 500 spaces will be hourly for students. This parking tower is a part of UL's master plan. Not only will it help with parking issues, but it will help to eliminate surface parking on campus turning those areas into green spaces with more bike paths.
"It's going to do a lot to make the campus nicer, and by channeling the trafficking in different areas it should help the congestion on campus," says Bill Crist, Director of Facility Management at UL.
The parking tower will be located on Lewis Street with the entrance on Gerard Park Circle, which is right in the middle of Fletcher Hall and Rougeau Hall. Construction will begin on November 1, and is set to be finished by fall of 2014.
