Lakeshore Campus Construction

(click map to enlarge)

We are excited to be entering the final stages of our Campus Enhancement Plan (CEP). For the next several months, campus construction will be focused on creating the Campus Commons, an outdoor space for members and visitors. This webpage provides you with weekly updates on how the construction may impact your visit to Lakeshore.

Construction Updates for the Week of August 14-21

  • We recognize that right now it is difficult to navigate campus and find appropriate parking. Unfortunately, as the construction progresses, these challenges will increase. In an effort to provide more clarity on parking and navigational options, this week we will offer campus tours to explain the best driving routes, pedestrian pathways and parking locations. Please meet in front of the main entrance to Lakeshore Foundation, under the large white awning, during one of the following times.
    • Friday, August 16 – 8:30 a.m. & 11:30 a.m.
    • Monday, August 19 – 8:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. & 5 p.m.
    • Tuesday, August 20 – 8:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. & 5 p.m.
  • Last week a portion of the road, circled above, connecting two main lower-level parking areas closed. This road will remain closed for the duration of Commons construction. Additionally, beginning approximately Monday, August 19 the small loop road, circled above, connecting the parking lots closest to Lakeshore Foundation’s main entrance will close. This road closure will remove approximately three accessible parking spaces close to Lakeshore’s entrance.
  • You will still be able to access all parking areas, but your route to the area may be altered. Please drive slowly and pay close attention to all signage.
  • The stairs, highlighted in orange, connecting the upper and lower lots remain open. Please note that it may be difficult to navigate the stairwell and upper walkway due to rough terrain.
  • Plan to arrive early for your class to allow for parking changes, which may require you to take a different path to the building.
  • If you do not attend a Lakeshore class or program, consider altering the time you visit Lakeshore. Afternoons are generally less crowded as well as Thursdays and Fridays.

We recognize this construction is inconvenient, but we are doing our best each day to minimize its impact. We are excited that the end result will create a more active, connected and beautiful campus.
