Orange plastic fencing is not attractive—but it signals where change is coming to IUPUI!
On the east side of campus, the new parking garage is rising up from the ground as you can see from the pylons in the photo. Scheduled to be open in August, the garage will accommodate 1,300 parkers.
On the west wide of campus, the Glick Eye Institute is under construction. Wishard has begun Phase I of its activities in conjunction with the land swap. Larue Carter Hospital is being demolished and the State Board of Health Building is scheduled to come down. Plus, near my own office in the Administration Building, Citizens Thermal will be laying new utility lines. All this will require shifting parking spots as well as street and lane closures.
On the south side of campus, in May the NCAA will begin construction of a major addition. That will change parking near the Indianapolis Tennis Center as portions of our property there will be used for construction staging.
The best way to cope with all this for the next few months is to keep informed. Here are three resources that will help you follow the construction timelines and plan your trips to campus.
1.The IUPUI Master Plan web site is now live. It contains information about the construction projects as well as updates on how they will affect traffic.
2.Parking and Transportation Services also posts updates. Follow them on Twitter (IUPUIPARK) and find out where spaces are available.
3.Our Wishard neighbors are also eager to keep their staff and visitors informed. For information on the new hospital, see http://www.wishardfacts.org. You can even become a fan on Facebook.
