W and T parking lots at the University of Connecticut will undergo electrical and general restoration improvements beginning next month, Chief Financial Officer Scott Jordan said in a letter to the board of trustees dated Feb. 27, 2019. 

The project, which will cost $2,843,291, will improve lighting and various landscaping in the two adjacent parking lots. 

“The project consists of removal and replacement of existing light pole bases, poles and fixtures with new light pole bases, poles and LED light fixtures,” the letter said. “Site improvements include providing sediment and erosion control measure and tree protection measures.” 

Construction will begin in May 2019 and end in September 2019, the letter said.
