As crews prepare for construction of a new dormitory on the Tyler Junior College main campus, parking will be affected.

This week, construction crews assigned to help build a 250-bed residence hall on the west side of campus will block off one existing parking lot and portions of another to create a safe working environment, according to a TJC news release.

The construction will directly affect access to 185 parking spaces regularly used by TJC students, employees and fleet vehicles.

When students and employees return from Spring Break, on March 17, these 185 spaces will be unavailable. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to prepare for this change.

The affected lots are S-2 and S-3, between South Magnolia Drive and South Baxter Avenue. The lots are next to Sledge Hall and the Campus Services and Marketing Services buildings.

Students are encouraged to use S-22, which is west of Magnolia Avenue, and S-13, S-14 and S-15, which are on the main campus’ east side.

The construction project will affect the two lots through November.
