Parking Ramp 2 expected to be completely demolished today


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

In an interview with The Daily Iowan, University of Iowa President Sally Mason revealed that she expects the UI Hospitals and Clinics Parking Ramp 2 to be demolished by today.

Because of relatively warm winter weather, construction is ahead of schedule.

The construction on the rest of campus is going as planned, and Mason reports steps were taken to prevent too much disturbance to faculty, patients, and students.

“We’ve taken some big steps already,” Mason said.

These include building the Iowa River Landing Clinic in Coralville and constructing a new parking ramp to reduce congestion.

Quite a few projects are in progress, those of which include preparation for the new location of Hancher and construction to the new residence hall west of the river.

There are also construction projects on the horizon for the East Side.

“When we start to build the music building, it’s going to get messy downtown,” she said. “That project is a big one.”

Mason insists that all the mess will be worth it in the end.

“The short-term pain is going to give us some long-term gain,” she said.
