Construction will continue on Eastside Parking Structure 2 while the campus is under the suspension of all non-essential campus functions due to the novel coronavirus COVID-19.
“Construction crews are working during this period of virtual instruction. The Eastside North Parking Structure is on track and will open for students in fall 2020,” said Kristen Jasko, director of Cal State Fullerton’s Parking and Transportation Services.
The new structure will feature 1,900 parking spots, energy-efficient LED lighting, as well as elevators and a staircase. Like the original Eastside structure, it also will feature a solar canopy.
The contractor for the $38.8 million project is Bomel Construction. This is the same contractor that built the first structure, as well as the State College Parking Structure located adjacent to the Student Recreation Center. The project includes road improvements to East Campus Drive.
The structure will be built on a portion of Lot E and will increase the number of parking spaces on campus.
