The long-awaited construction of the new Riordan football field brings with it some challenges. One such challenge is the temporary loss of the school parking lot to make room for construction equipment. The closure of the parking lot began on September 18 and is expected to last until October 5.

Head of Maintenance Brandon Ramsey said, “This closure is to help with supplies and the free movement of those supplies, as trucks will be in and out, moving them around daily.”

“This means I can’t open the parking lot until October 7,” said Ramsey. “I am hoping this will move faster and I will definitely let everyone know if the timing improves,” he added.

For the teachers who usually park in the parking lot, there were City College parking passes at the front desk. This was to help teachers get to school on time by making sure they didn’t have to worry about finding parking elsewhere. For now, their parking passes are only available for the lower reservoir. 

The closure of the parking lot creates a mindset for those around campus that the field is near completion, which is a very comforting feeling considering the years of waiting is finally coming to an end.
