By Cynthia Gonzales

Parking & Transportation Services, along with Facilities Management, would like to share with the university community that on Saturday, December 8, 2018, the tower crane utilized during the construction of the UHD Science and Technology Building will be dismantled and removed from the construction site.

During this time, to accommodate the space needed to dismantle the tower crane, UHD Parking Lot A will be closed. Please see map.

Alternate parking can be found in the UHD Bayou and Daly lots, as well as the Vine Street Student Garage. Surface-permit holders displaced by the closure of Lot A may park in the Vine Street Student Garage. The gate arms will be raised.
