Eastern Michigan University’s Physical Plant Division announced they will be closing the main Student Center parking lot August 16-18 for sealing and striping; PPD’s Buildings and Grounds Director Dieter Otto said the lot will reopen August 19, as long as weather conditions permit the work to be completed.

Interim parking can be found at the Student Center 1A Lot near the Hill Residence Halls, or the Mayhew Street Lots off Huron River Drive, all of which are located just north of the Student Center.

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 may be announced as information becomes available, for more details contact Otto at 734-487-0306.
