We are seeing significant progress in the drainage and infrastructure project on campus. With progress, as you can certainly see, we are also seeing many disruptions and inconveniences for all of us. Strategic Communications has been working with Risk Management to install signage in areas that are closed. Signage is also being placed on entrances to buildings that links to a new website with updates regarding the project and updates. This can be accessed at: http://www.lsua.edu/progress.
Another major change is happening this week – The front entrance of Abrams Hall will be closed until further notice. It will be later in the spring before it reopens. In the meantime, the attached campus map gives directions on accessing Abrams from various parking lots. The building itself can be accessed by the three entrances on the west side or the two entrances on the east side.
Parking on the south side of campus (Lots 5, 6 & 7) will access campus near Acorn Drive. Pedestrians may cross near the Foundation House and Cafeteria – then proceed through the Bookstore/Cafeteria breezeway.
The intersection at Grady Britt and Jerry Myrick remains closed at this time as well. It should reopen in the upcoming weeks.
Please use caution while traveling in construction zones – both in vehicles and while walking.
As always, if you have any questions, or need further clarification, please don’t hesitate to reach out at any time.
Library Parking Lot # 8 and Plant Parking Lot # 21 will be closed until further notice to all vehicle parking due to drainage culvert installations.
Alternate parking available on Lot’s 9, 10, and 14.
Grady Britt Dr. from Coughlin Hall ( Nursing Building ) to the intersection of Grady Britt Dr. and Jerry Myrick Dr. will be closed to all vehicle travel until further notice due drainage culvert installations.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience.
Any questions please contact the LSUA Police Department at 318-473-6427.
Construction will continue in the yellow blocks shown on Middleton Drive near Mulder Hall and the Student Center on the south side of campus and along Grady Britt Drive near the entrances to Lot 9 (Mulder) on the north side of campus.
Additionally, construction on the new circle drive near the west end of Middleton Drive and Thelma Ethridge Drive will begin within the next week. As such, this area will be closed and off limits.
Please use caution while traveling in these zones. Sections of these roads may be closed at times. While every effort is being made to keep roadways as clean as possible, due to the nature of this project, roadways in construction zones will be covered with dirt/mud at all times.
