Picnic Paradise

UAS – Anderson Parking Lot Expansion

UAS Construction Update for 4/22/2016

Picnic Paradise

UAS Campus has several wonderful places to have a picnic, sip morning hot chocolate or just take a short break. The Anderson Building parking expansion project has just added one more that I feel is the Picnic Paradise.  The view from Picnic Paradise this morning included bright blue skies, snow caped Admiralty Island, flat calm Auke Bay and some guy in his boat who did not have to go to work today.  Later this spring the view will include a blooming lilac bush that the Bedford family planted in their back yard more than 20 years ago.  During a mid-day break or during lunch, this will be a great place to take in your vitamin D on sunny days.

The Contractor started this project last fall and was not able to get it completed before the asphalt pavement plant shut down for the winter.  This spring the Contractor installed the sidewalks, parking lot lights and has prepared the grade for asphalt pavement.  Provide that we do not get heavy rain on Saturday they will pave the parking lot and complete this project.   However, the construction by the Anderson Building will just be starting.  For the next two summers, the Department of Transportation will be rebuilding Glacier Highway from Fritz Cove to Seaview.  Their project will add sidewalks to both sides of the road, streetlights, and wider shoulders for bicyclists.   It will also relocate our driveway entrance to the Anderson building and eliminate about half of the parking in the existing lot.  This is the reason the Anderson parking lot had to be expanded.
