KALAMAZOO--Continued progress on a major Western Michigan University construction project will result in a two-week closure of the parking lot behind Sangren Hall.

A large portion of Parking Lot 41, the lot directly north of Sangren Hall, will be closed beginning Thursday morning, Aug. 11, to complete necessary underground utility work for the new building being constructed in front of the existing Sangren Hall. The four rows of parking closest to the building will be fenced off, and aside from deliveries and handicapped parking, the lot will be inaccessible from Gilkison Avenue. Those wishing to park in the open portion of the lot can enter via Parking Lot 47 from North Dormitory Road.

The lot is scheduled to open for normal use Monday morning, Aug. 29, in time for fall move-in.

WMU's largest and most heavily used classroom facility, Sangren serves students from all of the University's academic colleges. Work to rebuild it from the ground up is on schedule for completion in 2012.
