Parking, shuttle stop to be interrupted Feb. 3 for construction work
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, Feb. 3 and Saturday, Feb. 4, Fred Cook Drive at the UTSA 1604 Campus will be closed intermittently from the southeast end of parking lot 1 to Bartlett Cocke Drive for the installation of a manhole. A crane will be set up for installation of the concrete unit that will be placed underground.
Fred Cook Drive runs north and south between lots 1 and 2 north of the University Center. Bartlett Cocke Drive runs east and west from the Business Building to the University Center.
Because of the construction work, the stop for the UTSA on-campus shuttle at the Humanities and Social Sciences Building, 1604 Campus, will be relocated only Feb. 3 to parking lot 3, north of the Business Building. Signs will be posted to directed bus riders to the temporary stop. Additionally, two rows of parking in lot 1 will be closed for the day.
