CRYSTAL LAKE – The reconstruction of Parking Lots B and D at McHenry County College, 8900 Route 14, will begin Monday, and the lots will be closed through mid-August.
Parking is open in other lots throughout the campus. The work also includes resurfacing of Ring Road, the circular drive around the perimeter of MCC’s Crystal Lake campus. Ring Road will remain open, but motorists should enter the campus at Entrance 3 (Lucas Road).
The reconstruction of Parking Lots B and D will result in a safer traffic pattern, wider parking spaces, and relocated bus and childcare drop-off locations, according to a news release from the college
“During this improvement, a stormwater pond will also be developed just north of MCC’s softball field,” Christina Haggerty, chief communications officer at MCC, said in the release.
The best parking lot to use for ScotStars Summer Youth Sports Camp is Parking Lot E for soccer camp. The best parking lot to use for the Kids and College summer program is Parking Lot C.
A temporary bus dropoff location during construction will be Parking Lot A, side lot by the entrance to the second floor of Building A, adjacent to the Office of Human Resources.
MCC has 29 handicapped parking spaces available during construction, located at Buildings A, C and E. At Building A, six handicapped spaces will be available on the north side, one space on the west side, and eight reserved spots on the west side (along Route 14).
At Building C, three handicapped spaces are open on the north side, and at Building E, 12 spaces are open on the north side and seven spaces on the east side.
