It should be good news for motorists at the University of Utah: The school's parking authorities plan to build two new parking garages.
Both will be located on existing parking lots, one in the west-central part of campus near Milton Bennion Hall and the Huntsman Center, and the other on the northwest side, close to the Sutton Building. Officials plan to break ground on the $20 million project shortly after the end of the school year this spring, said Alma Allred, director of commuter services.
When the new garages are complete, the total number of spaces will be 1,132 more than triple the 331 spots available now in those two lots combined. Should be a big relief for anyone who's spent time circling campus hunting for a parking space, right?
