NOTICE 12/13/18: VCBR Parking Lot and 360 Closure

VCBR Parking Lot and 360 Closing Map

The 360 entrance will be closed to traffic Monday, December 17th, 2018, and will remain closed to traffic for several years until the expansion project has been completed. All VCBR traffic must use the 460 entrance.

VCBR’s original parking lot will be closed on Monday December 17th, 2018. Please be advised the new Crepe Myrtle Drive entrance is a divided road so be sure you are traveling the right way. There is a pull off for deliveries that use the front entry.

The 360 entrance will be closed to traffic. It will function as a construction entrance only. All staff and visitors for VCBR will need to come in the 460 entrance. As you come through campus, you will pass building 29 on your right and make a right turn onto the new Crepe Myrtle road to enter the parking lot.

The vistor entrance and employee entrances will continue to be accessible.

For detailed information and a map showing designated spaces, please open the attached PDF - VCBR Parking Lot Opening and 360 Closure Details

Please be advised that the turn from Route 360 onto campus will be closed to traffic. At this time, please use the alternative entrance from Route 460. There will be signs directing traffic from the 460 entrance for those who are not familiar with it. We strongly recommend not using Lewiston Plank Road (723) between Route 360 and 460. This intersection has a high number of accidents and we want staff, visitors, and family members to be safe.

    Alternative routes recommended are as follows:
  • From Richmond via Route 360: Make a left onto Route 49; Turn right onto Route 460; Turn Right onto campus.
  • From Route 460 heading east: Continue on Route 460 past Route 360 towards Crewe; Turn left onto campus.

We recognize that this is a disruption, but the target is parking lot completion within 80 days. Thank you for your patience.
