The creation of a new campus parking lot south of the 2020 Project development site will help add 1,570 net new parking spaces to UC Merced's parking inventory by 2020 - a 60% increase. The parking lot paving strategy has designed to allow stormwater to replish the aquifer during winter rain and the parking stalls are colored white in order to reflect heat during the summer.
As part of the project, a new stoplight will be installed at the intersection of Bellevue and Lake Roads. The lot will include ADA Parking and charging infrastructure for electric vehicles as well. The lot will open in phases between Fall 2017 and Fall 2020.
Developer: Plenary Properties Merced
Completion Date: Phased Delivery between Fall 2017 and Fall 2020
