Some parking lot 1 spaces closed Jan. 27
One row of spaces in parking lot 1 at the UTSA 1604 Campus will be unavailable Friday, January 27 for installation of a component of the duct bank project. Lot 1 is north of the University Center and is bounded by Margaret Tobin Ave. on the north and Walter Brenan Ave. on the west.
The bank of underground ducts contains electrical conduits. The parking spaces should be returned to service by the end of the day. Friday was chosen for the work because there is less traffic and thus less parking disruption.
For more information, call (210) 458-PARK (7275).
