The north parking lot at Tucker Coliseum will be closed July 23-Aug. 3 so that crews from Blackstone Construction of Russellville can re-pave that space in advance of the fall 2012 semester.
The Arkansas Tech Board of Trustees awarded a construction contract for the project in the amount of $135,376 to Blackstone Construction during its June meeting.
Funding for the project is available through the parking lot infrastructure account and the funded depreciation reserve.
The two-week project to refurbish the north end of the Tucker Coliseum parking lot is part one of a two-phase plan.
According to a memorandum presented to trustees at that meeting, Arkansas Tech plans on accomplishing a similar asphalt overlay of the south end of the Tucker Coliseum parking lot during summer 2013.
