Anyone knows more about this project?

Is the renovation of the 6 buildings part of it?

I don’t think so. Seems like it may be a new project. Can’t find anything on it though.

Quad replacement now in construction phase. 1200 beds.

Don’t forget about the football operations center. It has been put on the back burner but as the football team has more success, it will be built, or a different version of the original model.

Mentioned this in the track section as well, but this thread is also a good place for this. I don’t think that the Track section of Coogfans gets alot of traffic. The next project should be adding a press box to the track and soccer complex. The University of Maryland had a situation like we do and this is what they did.

That’s a great idea!

I think the $150 million will be for the new medical school.

Many lots, roads to close for construction over the summer

http://thedailycougar.com/2019/06/13/lots-roads-close-construction/

Parking lots 20A and 20C will both be closed starting mid June until Summer 2020 for construction work on the new parking garage six.

There is not yet an exact date for the closure of the lots, but Parking and Transportation Services expects the lot to shut down and construction to begin between June 17 and July 1.

“There are a few construction details that need to be worked out before a firm date is provided to us,” said Director of UH Parking and Transportation Services Neil Hart. “We just wanted to give as much advance notice as we could so there were no surprises.”

The lots are some of the busiest on campus and the largest in Zone C, but UH parking says students with Zone C passes should not have trouble finding spaces.
