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.

This month the Ann Street lot will be closed July 18-21, and the Snow, Mayhew and Student Center 1-A lots will be closed July 23-27.

Physical Plant Division’s Buildings and Grounds Director Dieter Otto said the lots being closed the week of July 23rd may be finished sooner than the 27th, but all the dates listed 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.
