Eastern Michigan University’s Physical Plant Division announced they will be temporary closing several campus parking lots, for sealing and striping, every week from now until the end of August.

Currently the paid McKenny and Hoyt parking lots will be closed through Friday, August 3. Students who live in the Village Residence halls and normally use the Hoyt Parking Lot can park in Green Lot 2.

Physical Plant Division’s Buildings and Grounds Director Dieter Otto said the completion date may vary due to weather conditions.

The work being done is a result of the $25 increase in parking tag pricing that was implemented by the university in fall 2011. Otto said by the end of August the university will have rebuilt or sealed and striped 60 percent of its parking lots.?  ?

Further closings will be announced as the information becomes available, for more details contact Otto at 734-487-0306.
