T-Dust Alert #37 – Mobility Assistance Shuttle Service During A & B Parking Lot Renovation

WHAT? A shuttle service for students, faculty, and staff with mobility issues will be offered throughout the A & B Parking Lot renovation project.

WHERE? The shuttle service will run from the sidewalk where Parking Lots C & D meet and transport riders to the north entrance of Thunderduck Hall.

WHEN? This shuttle service will begin on Thursday, October 20. Shuttle service will be offered from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays; 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Fridays; and 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays until the resurfacing project is completed.

WHAT ELSE? For additional convenience, two benches, one just south of Sabine Hall and another along the sidewalk leading to Thunderduck Hall, have been installed as resting points for anyone walking from Parking Lots C & D to Thunderduck Hall.

AND THEN WHAT ELSE? To enhance pedestrian safety for students, faculty, and staff needing to navigate the project area, additional temporary fencing is being installed to prevent slips and falls from foot traffic on the grassy area northwest of Thunderduck Hall. Additional crosswalk markings will be installed to indicate where pedestrians should safely cross the service drive, and signs will be installed to advise vehicles using the service drive to stop for pedestrians crossing the service drive.

WHEN ELSE? The resurfacing project is tentatively scheduled to last through the week of November 20, 2011, if the weather cooperates.
