Construction for new parking garage remains on schedule

Work remains on schedule for the construction of Upstate Medical University’s new parking garage, designated as the West Garage. Work will continue through November on the garage’s foundation and underground utilities. Precast concrete will begin arriving on site in December to be assembled over a period of about four months. This is the same process that was used to construct the East Garage. Once completed, the building will begin receiving utilities: elevators, lighting, generators, plumbing, fire systems and gate entry systems. The schedule for the bridge over Sarah Loguen Street to the East Garage has not been finalized. The entire parking garage project is expected to be completed next fall.

A parking lot has been created on the site of the old parking garage to accommodate University Hospital volunteers and medical residents. This parking lot was part of the initial planning developed when the garage was scheduled for demolition.

All outlying parking lots served by shuttle buses, including Alliance Bank Stadium lot, will continue to be in service until the West Garage opens.
