Construction in Bevatron Lot to Create Loss of Parking Spaces

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.

Reminder on Stack Parking Rules

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.
