Tech Adding Parking Lot On College Ave.

SOCORRO, N.M. July 22, 2013 – New Mexico Tech is opening a new parking lot on College Avenue just east of campus.

The currently vacant lot will be graded and gravel will be applied. Parking bumpers will be installed, creating more than 200 parking spots.

The new lot will be free parking, available to faculty, staff, students and visitors. The new lot is expected to be available by the beginning of the fall semester. Construction of the new Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources building will remove about 100 parking by Cramer Hall and the Skeen Library. That lot will be blocked off by August 1, with demolition of the ISD building commencing shortly thereafter.
