University Construction Projects in Full Swing During Summer

Construction projects will continue at Cal Poly Pomona throughout the summer. Projects meant to improve the campus infrastructure will affect street access and parking availability. In addition, several offices will be temporarily relocated. Construction activities were intentionally scheduled during the summer to minimize the impact to the campus community, and Facilities Planning & Management thanks the campus community for its patience and understanding as these projects are completed.

Campus Accessibility Improvement Project

Beginning Monday, June 13, and continuing through the summer, a significant improvement to campus accessibility will be completed in the center of campus. The project includes the development and repairs of 25 fully accessible parking spaces and will bring the entrances of several offices in compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations. A turning circle will also be added in Camphor Lane to allow the campus shuttle system, Bronco Express, to once again serve the interior of the campus.

To accommodate these improvements, Camphor Lane will be closed for the summer while it is repaired and the turning circle is added. In addition, most areas between Campus Center (Building 97), the Cultural Centers (Building 95), and Music (Building 24) will be fenced off, and pedestrian traffic will be restricted to Olive Lane to access all impacted buildings.

A campus map that highlights the area of construction can be found here.

A site plan of these improvements can be found here.

From June 20 through July 8, several office entrances will be upgraded to comply with ADA regulations. The following offices will be affected:

  • African American Student Center will be relocated to the Native American Student Center (Building 26, Room 105) from June 20 through July 8.    
  • Asian and Pacific Islander Student Center will be relocated to the Office of Student Life (Building 26, Room 124) from June 20-22.    
  • Campus Center Marketplace will be closed for the summer.    
  • Career Center will remain open throughout upgrades; however the entrance will change to alternate locations during construction. Follow posted signs to the appropriate entrance.     
  • Cesar E. Chavez Center for Higher Education will be relocated to the Office of Student Life (Building 26, Room 124) from June 20 through July 8.    
  • ReEntry & WoMens Resource Center will be relocated to the Campus Center (Building 97, Room 119) June 20 through July 8.    

All impacted offices are projected to be back in their original locations no later than Monday, July 11. Camphor Lane and all pedestrian paths in the construction zone are scheduled to reopen prior to the start of Fall Quarter.

Partial Parking Lot and Street Closures

Beginning June 13 and continuing through July 5, two parking lots and a street near CLA will be impacted as utility lines are extended to the Parking Structure I construction site.


The faculty-staff parking lot closest to CLA will have approximately 40 spaces fenced off as the first phase of trenching to install electrical and telecommunication lines is conducted. Accessible and service zone spaces closest to CLA will remain open. Pedestrian detour signs will be posted in the lot to guide people around the construction fence. This first phase of trenching is scheduled to be complete by July 6.


The Red Gum Lane entrance to this student parking lot will be fenced off and closed for trenching to extend electrical lines to Kellogg Drive.  Alternate entrances to this lot will be available off Oak Lane and detour signs will be posted to guide students. This parking lot is scheduled to reopen by July 6.


On June 15 and 16, the loop around Voorhis Park will be closed to conduct site surveys for the eventual connection of water lines to the Parking Structure later in thesummer. Red Gum Lane will remain open in both directions during this phase.

A campus map locating these areas of impact can be found here.
