Thank you for your questions. We’ll try to address many of your questions at the campus forum this afternoon. It will be available via live stream and shared with the campus at a later date. One of the reasons for hosting the forum is to find out what issues our employees may have and address those as soon as best we can. We’ll also post answers here and add to a list of FAQs where appropriate. Again, thank you for bringing these concern to our attention.

    What is going to happen to the stairs that come up from Alumni drive? Will there be a way to go past the construction once you get to the top? I use those stairs pretty regularly to get from the Admin building up to campus. Thanks!

      The stairs from Alumni Drive up to Tanana Loop will initially be open, but there will be large trucks and heavy equipment as soon as the road closes. Pedestrian access will be rerouted up Alumni Drive and around sometime in May. Please refer to the map for the route and watch for signs and announcements.

      Derek, the stairs adjacent to Alumni Drive will initially be open, however, we’re recommending the campus community and others who use the campus begin to go around. Once the construction on the Engineering Building gets started, there will be heavy truck construction and pedestrian access will be very limited once you reach the top of hill. That is expected to be around the end of May. Please watch for signage and updates as the busy construction season gets underway.

    I see on the lower campus map some small remaining HCP areas. How much of a reduction in HCP spaces is this? Will these parking lot closures continue on into the winter months? I cannot get to my job without a HCP space near my building. The shuttle is not a viable option for me.

    Will the fine arts parking lot be closed? If so, do we get a refund on our parking fee?

    I park in the Cooperative Extension lot – will Taku Drive be 2 way so we can use our lot?

    Thank you.

    I am disabled and work at Brooks Building. I am currently dependent on either being able to park in the disabled parking behind the building or use the disabled shuttle from an alternate disabled parking place as my walking is very limited. Since the road that provides access to Brooks will be closed this will leave my building with no vehicular access. I am not able to walk to Brooks from Eielson which would I believe be the next closest place the shuttle can access. Please provide information as to how Brooks will remain accessible during this two year period.
    An additional and related concern is, how will you replace the disabled parking in the Fine Arts and Duckering and Brooks parking areas? Since these are always in use this certainly indicates that others besides myself have a need for these parking spots that will not be met by simply directing us to existing disabled parking in other lots.

    The HCP in front of Singers Hall is for visitors only, will it be for employees during this time of construction? It seems to be marked that way on the map… If so will the signs be changed?

    Thank you for your questions on the ADA parking. We’ll try to address many of your questions at the campus forum this afternoon.

    From Martin Klein, Facilities Services
    Several people have asked about ADA spaces in the campus core during this summer construction. Most of the ADA spaces in the core remain unaffected. ADA spaces in West Eielson, South Eielson, Signers’ , Chapman and Whitaker remain available. Three ADA spaces in East Bunnell go away with the removal of the parking. Additional temporary ADA spaces in South Bunnell, however, for some periods this summer the ADA spaces in South Bunnell will be relocated in that lot to allow for some excavation. ADA spaces in Fine Arts lot will not be available from May 10 through Sept. 1. ADA spaces will be added in the Wood Center pullout during this time.

    A sewer line dig in Tanana Loop will occur during a 4-6 seek period this summer. This is currently estimated for June and part of July. Access to the backside of the Brooks Building ADA will be unavailable. During this short period alternate shuttle/cart transport is being explored. Users that will have specific access needs to this building during this time should contact Parking Services to make them aware of their anticipated needs.

    Pedestrian access from the Taku parking lot to the campus core up Taku hill will be closed. Users should consider alternate routes during this time period. Cooperative Extension/Forestry lot users will receive special instructions for access to the parking lot and building during this sewer line dig.

    Through out the summer UAF campus shuttles will be running and provide on call service to anyone need ADA access to buildings. Contact them at 474-RIDE (7433)
