The new remote parking lot at Gee Building is close to completion. The area finally dried out and the pavement went down on August 1st with striping right after. Landscaping is yet to be completed as well as Duke Power installation of parking lot lighting. Once fully complete, the State Construction will need to come on-site for a final inspection and we can begin the project close-out process.
