NIU Parking Services has informed drivers last week who park along Grant Drive North in lots O, X and W about the upcoming construction. Drivers are advised to use lots O, W, P and PS and take an alternate route instead of Grant Drive North.

One lane will remain open for traffic access.

“Our options for scheduling this are very limited because the asphalt plants will close for the winter in the next two weeks,” said Jeff Daurer, assistant vice president for Capital Budget and Planning. “The top dressing will vastly improve this road that is heavily used by our residence hall students for getting to their parking lots.”

The No. 4 bus route will also be affected by the construction. Students are advised to plan accordingly. Students who normally take the bus to Grant Hall are advised to stop at Stevenson or Douglas/Lincoln Hall stop.
