The side entrance to City College at 12th Avenue and Panther Parkway will be closed between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Nov. 15 by the city of Sacramento in an effort to complete improvements to this section of the road as part of a footbridge project.

“It’s going to be a little inconvenient for three to four hours,” said City College Director of Operations Greg Hayman. “It’s not the main entrance so students can still go through the west parking lot to get to the parking garage.”

According to Hayman, traffic will be diverted to the west parking lot where drivers can turn left on Panther Parkway to access additional parking. Traffic will also be reduced to one inbound lane, which will be diverted directly into the parking structure.

Drivers leaving the parking structure and the North Lot during the closure will need to exit via 24th Street.

“The city is trying to get this work done before the rain comes on Friday,” said Hayman. “This may be the last dry spell we see before the weather changes so we’re trying to accommodate [the city] the best we can. We regret the inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience.”

The footbridge, which will create a path over the light rail tracks next year, will be a part of the Curtis Park Village project slated to begin in 2013. This closure is part of the final phase of improvements to the campus roadways that will help direct foot traffic from Curtis Park Village out to the street.

Further information is available by contacting Greg Hayman at (916) 558-2544.
