As part of the construction of the new Physical Sciences Building, the metered parking lot south of the Lederle Graduate Research Center lowrise has been permanently closed.
A new Lot 61 reserved for long-term handicapped parking has been opened between the Lederle GRC lowrise and tower. Access is from Governors Drive. The new lot includes four 15-minute loading zone spaces.
Also, the enclosed bus stop that was near the West Experiment Station on North Pleasant Street has been moved north to a temporary location adjacent to the Lederle lowrise. The relocation will continue for the duration of the Physical Sciences Building construction.
