Parking Lot at SUNY Plattsburgh to Close Monday
SUNY Plattsburgh’s Parking Lot 3 — the off-campus student lot that runs along Draper Avenue behind Hawkins Hall — will be closed starting Monday, Oct. 3, as construction begins on the new building that will house the college’s computer science program and the School of Business and Economics.
With funds coming from the five-year plan of the SUNY Construction Fund, the building is expected to cost just over $14 million and open in the spring of 2013. Pike Construction has been awarded the contract.
To ease the parking congestion created by this construction, SUNY Plattsburgh has partnered with Clinton County Public Transit through College Auxiliary Services to make a free parking shuttle available for faculty, staff and students with a valid college ID. Passengers without an ID will be charged $1 per trip. Individuals who ride the shuttle from Oct. 3 to Oct. 14 will receive a free coffee coupon good at various on-campus venues through the end of October.
Every day classes are in session, the green-and-white SUNY Plattsburgh parking shuttle bus will make loops around campus, three times each hour, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a 30-minute break for lunch from 12:10 to 12:40 p.m. It will stop at six locations around campus — by Sibley Hall, Feinberg Library, Ward Hall, Hawkins Hall, Kehoe Administrative Building and Angell College Center. Stops are marked with a small, red-and-white SUNY Shuttle sign with the designated pick-up times listed.
Because of the wealth of parking space available behind Sibley Hall, the college is encouraging individuals to park there and take the shuttle to reach other destinations on campus. Everyone who parks in this lot — or in any other on campus — needs to have a hang-tag parking permit. Permits may be obtained by registering through my.plattsburgh.edu. Those parking without a permit will be ticketed.
The SUNY Plattsburgh parking shuttle is handicapped accessible.
