General parking lot areas to be painted Sept. 2-4. Lots will be closed during painting and vehicles must be moved.
When you paint a room, you move the furniture out of the way.
The same concept will apply Sept. 2-4 at Shoreline Community College when contractors will repaint the lines on the campus parking lots.
“They’ll be painting all the lots over the three days, one large section each day,” Director of Safety and Security Robin Heslop said. Each day, the section designated for painting will be closed to parking and all vehicles that may already be parked in that area must be moved for the day.
“We realize there will be some short-term inconvenience, but doing it this way allows the job to be done more efficiently and get it finished before the students come back for fall quarter,” Heslop said.
The sequence and general areas to be painted are:
Sept. 2 – The west side lots, including the parent-child center turnaround.
Sept. 3 – The south side lots, including staff parking near the visitors lot, the lot south of the PUB and the music building staff lot.
Sept. 4 – The northeast and north side lots, including automotive area.
Heslop said there will be a few tricky parts.
“We can’t close off the main entrance and loop road used by Metro Transit,” Heslop said. “On Thursday, Sept. 3, they’ll paint one side of the loop road, let it dry and then paint the other side. “It means there will be just one lane available that day.”
The Friday, Sept. 4, project includes the automotive area, where a number of cars used in that program are parked. “Don Schultz (SCC Automotive Training Center Director) has been great and is arranging to move those cars temporarily to west side lots,” Heslop said. The construction staging area near the automotive expansion project will just have to wait, she added.
