Commuters to the Boca campus have dealt with their share of parking annoyances. Over the course of the last year, more lots were built to alleviate the daily duels for parking spaces, but for the rest of the summer, they’ll get to enjoy doing it again.

Two construction projects on the Boca campus are already underway. Parking Garage 1, next to the S.E.Wimberly Library, is completely closed for renovation and repainting. Work will be done to recaulk and reseal the garage to extend its functional lifetime and hopefully reduce the amount of  construction required in the future.

Portions of Parking Lot 4 are also closed. Located just north of the College of Medicine and Engineering East, construction will be done to reconfigure the lot to align with the new Florida Atlantic Boulevard, which opens sometime in the fall. Access to and from the lot is restricted to the southern entrance from Lot 2.

Both projects are scheduled to be finished before the fall semester begins. But in the event that it takes longer than expected, parking may once again become a daily battle.

“I’ve never had a problem parking for summer even when there was construction,” said sophomore elementary education major Dana Ramsay. “But in the fall, the space is already so limited that it’s just going to cause people to park in the farthest spots possible.”

While the construction is taking place, extra parking is available in Lot 5, located on the north end of campus just north of the football stadium construction. A shuttle service is available to take you to and from the parking lot to the north end of the Breezeway.
