TYLER — The Tyler Junior College Main campus is growing, with one major construction project under way and a second about to begin.
Next week, construction crews assigned to help build a new 250-bed residence hall on the west side of campus will be blocking off one existing parking lot and portions of another, to create a safe working environment.
The construction will directly impact access to 185 parking spaces that are regularly utilized by TJC students, employees and TJC fleet vehicles.
Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to be prepared for this development. When students and employees return from Spring Break, on Monday, March 17, these 185 spaces will not be available.
The lots affected are S-2 and S-3, between South Magnolia and South Baxter avenues. The lots are adjacent to Sledge Hall and the Campus Services and Marketing Services buildings.
Students are encouraged to utilize S-22, to the west of Magnolia Avenue, and S-13, S-14 and S-15 – on the east side of the Main campus.
The construction project will impact the affected lots through the end of November, 2014.

"We deeply appreciate the public’s understanding and patience as Tyler Junior College expands to better serve our community," said TJC Provost Dr. Homer "Butch" Hayes.
