Construction fence goes up at Wichita State where new residence hall will go

Workers have put up a construction fence around the part of the Wichita State University parking lot located between the Morrison Hall administration building and Cessna Stadium.

People were still parking inside that portion of the lot on Tuesday. The gates of the fenced-off area were still open as of late Tuesday afternoon. But those gates will soon be closed, university officials said on Tuesday.

The parking lot will be the site of a new residence hall. The university put off construction until after the graduation ceremonies last weekend.

Hundreds of parking lot spaces will disappear at WSU, where parking has always been a challenge.
