Construction on Tropicana - Garage Expansion Begins

Aug. 4, 2021

Construction commenced on the Tropicana Garage expansion project on August 2. 

Between August 2 and August 6, contractors will set up the construction zone and fence off the perimeter of the Red Lot. Note: This lot is now unavailable for campus parking. 

The following impacts will take place this week:

  • The road around Tropicana Garage will be temporarily closed to allow for the construction of a road bypass around the construction zone

  • The side access road east side of Tropicana Garage will be used as a temporary detour until August 6

There will be orange pylons as well as traffic control flaggers to assist with traffic flow during construction activities. The bypass road will be completed within 5-days and opened by 3 p.m. on Friday, August 6th to allow for normal traffic flow for the duration of the construction. 

For the duration of the project, construction will take place Monday - Friday only. Tropicana Garage will be open during the expansion project. Additional closures or detours will be communicated as they arise. 

The new Tropicana Garage expansion is tentatively scheduled to open in September 2022.
