Students at Northern Michigan University are going to be cramming for finals and not just because they'll be hitting the books. They'll be looking for parking. In the coming weeks construction is set to begin on a new Jamrich Academic Building. The project is state funded and has a budget of 33 million dollars. Starting next week, parking in lot 28 will be going from 232 spaces down to about 70.
"We're recommencing that for folks that will be using the LRC that they utilize lot 11, if you frequent the Hedgecock building lot 62, 7th street, and what remains in lot 28," said NMU Engineer Jim Thams.
Once the semester ends, lot 28 will be closed entirely as construction goes through the summer. Officials are hoping to have the project complete by the start of the 20-14 fall semester.
