Project Update: 9th Avenue Garage Expansion


FOD Project Update


9th Avenue Garage Expansion (MCFP)


May 12, 2008

The 9th Ave Parking Garage Expansion is the addition of a second 1000-car garage east of the existing parking garage located on the corner of 9th Avenue and Medical Center Drive. This garage will occupy the site of an existing university surface parking lot along 9th Avenue. The construction is slated to begin in the summer of 2008 and to be completed in late summer 2009. The alleys adjacent to the project will be resurfaced or replaced, depending on underground conditions. Traffic flow in and around the site will be temporarily interrupted at times as construction and utility work commences.





May 7

The contracting team has been selected by public bid process and the contracts awarded. The electrical contractor will begin mobilization soon and be working in the north-south and east-west alleys within the next two weeks. Look for temporary closures of the alleys around the construction site.





The target date to begin construction is June 9, 2008 after spring quarter Commencement. Look for further detailed information updates as construction begins.




We anticipate issuing the next update in mid-July. This will allow us to include pertinent information from the early construction excavations and below grade work.
