Construction Projects
In order to alleviate congestion and to provide additional parking options for the campus community, UCI Transportation is constructing several new parking facilities. The first, a surface parking lot located at Bison Avenue and Health Sciences Road, broke ground earlier this month. This parking lot will provide 1,000 additional stalls and is set to open this fall. The second, a 33-stall faculty and staff parking lot will be constructed adjacent to the Multipurpose Science and Technology Building and is also anticipated to open this fall.

UCI Transportation will continue to provide project updates as they become available, including dates for the opening of these parking facilities.

Parking Lot 12B Impacts for ISEB Project
In support of the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Building (ISEB) construction, parking lot 12B will be impacted. UCI Transportation will continue to closely monitor the area and provide adjustments to parking stall types in nearby parking locations when necessary in preparation for the eventual loss of parking in lot 12B. As contractors provide further details of their work schedules, we will also continue to offer updates on the T&DS website. Thank you for your patience as we work to accommodate campus construction impacts.
