Parts of the Gold Garage (Parking Garage 1) will be closed due to structural repairs at 7 a.m. on Monday, May 21, until 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 27, according to an email sent out by External Relations on Friday, May 18.

Several parking spaces on the second through the fifth floors will be closed. The repairs on each floor will happen on the north side of the garage near the elevators.

Parking spaces on the fifth floor will be closed from 7 a.m. on Monday, May 21, until 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 2.

The area outside of the north side of the garage will be closed at 7 a.m. on Friday, May 25, through
5 p.m. on Sunday, May 27. The sidewalks will be completely closed to pedestrian traffic during this time.

The Gold Garage will be completely closed at 7 a.m. on Saturday, May 26, until 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 27. Vehicles will not be able to park or access the garage.

UPDATE 5/24/2018:

A concrete panel on the north side of the Gold Garage was slightly displaced, possibly by a vehicle impact, according to Patrick D. Meagher, director of Facilities Construction.

The damaged panel is not a structural element of the garage, Meagher said in an email to Student Media. The panel is an aesthetic feature.

There will be no changes made to the Gold Garage, either structurally or aesthetically.

Temporary supports were installed into the panel to ensure that it would not displace during the evaluation and design process of the permanent repairs.

The permanent repairs will occur from Friday, May 25 until Sunday, May 27. The temporary supports will be removed and the panel will be moved back into its original position with permanent supports fastened, according to Meagher.

Update 5/26/2018: Repairs Delayed

An email sent out by external relations on May 25 stated that due to complications with the weather, repairs on the garage have been delayed.

The sidewalks on the north side of the garage will also be completely closed from Friday, June 1 to Sunday, June 3 at 5 p.m., and the garage itself will be completely closed from Saturday, June 2 to Sunday, June 3 at 5 p.m., so no cars can enter.
