The Blackberry Pit parking lot (Lot D) will reopen for parking midweek the week of July 18. On Tuesday, July 19, ongoing construction activities will result in the closing of approximately two dozen spots in the Bevatron lot (Lot B1) during July and August. More>
Beginning next week, portions of Parking Lot I (Upper Bevatron parking lot) will be closed to accommodate Bayview site construction activities. The project team will work closely with the contractor to minimize impact to parking in Lot I during the month of July. Contact Dave Dovichi (x2958) or Tim Kemper (x6917) with any questions.
A briefing on the Integrative Genomics Building, the impacts on parking, commute options, the recent commute survey, and work by the Vehicle Access and Alternative Transportation Advisory Group (VAATAG) was presented. Video>
A briefing on construction of the Integrative Genomics Building, the impacts on parking, and commute options will be presented, followed by a Q&A. The event takes place from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Building 50 Auditorium, and will be live streamed. Visit the commute website for information, to offer feedback, and access resources.
Lab employees, as well as guests visiting the Lab for meetings and events, can access the map at the MyFamily at LBNL website. For any questions about the map, contact Leah Temple of the Facilities Division. More>
Construction will commence on Tuesday, June 14, to replace part of the retaining wall at the Bayview Site (Bevatron parking lot). This will create room for a new utility plant that will accommodate future research buildings to be located on the site. As a result, 29 parking spaces will be permanently closed. Contact Dave Dovichi (x2958) with any questions.
To maximize available space for cars, the Lab uses stack parking in several areas around the main campus. For this arrangement to be effective, those participating should be aware of the requirements: drivers need to display a Stack Parking Card and park as close as possible to the vehicle, stop line, or barrier in front of their vehicle. Violators will be cited. The full policy can be viewed here.
Starting Saturday May 7, the parking stalls on the first bench below (south) of Building 31 will be used for Bus Services parking. Vehicles in this area must be moved by 5 p.m. Friday, May 6. The shuttles and vans are being moved to this area to mitigate the loss of numerous parking stalls in lot B1 (Bevatron lot) due to construction activities.
The closures are required for construction to reinforce the retaining wall along Blackberry Canyon Road, which leads to the D (Pit) parking lot. Traffic will be reduced to one lane on Alvarez Road between Buildings 55 and 90 until July. Parking alternatives will be provided, with additional details to follow. Contact Dave Dovichi (x2958) for more information.
At its March 1 and 14 meetings, the Vehicle Access and Alternative Transportation Advisory Group worked on a proposal to increase carpooling incentives, and discussed a new bike-trailer program. The Lab anticipates the loss of nearly 300 onsite parking spots when construction for the new Integrative Genomics Building begins this summer. More>
