NEWS IN BRIEF

Plan ahead for parking

 

Transportation and Parking Services announced Monday that parking spaces in the North Entry Parking Structure would be limited starting this week due to a construction project.

Approximately 50 to 70 parking spaces will be unavailable every day, beginning today, according to a TAPS press release. The parking impacts will last until Nov. 28. Signs will be posted to alert drivers about which level will be impacted each day.

The cause of the parking limitations is the installation of a new energy-efficient lighting system that will use occupancy sensors to control light output. When no activity is detected the lights will operate at 50 percent capacity; otherwise they will operate at 100 percent.

TAPS officials say the lighting project is intended to meet campus sustainability goals by saving energy and maintenance costs and reducing the carbon footprint of the campus. They estimate the new system will result in $120,000 per year in energy savings.XXX
