Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) is improving parking facilities at the College’s Middletown Campus. The work, begun in June, includes resurfacing, installation of enhanced lighting, signage, and additional surface painting providing direction to drivers.
“These improvements will ultimately enhance the safety of students, staff and visitors to the campus,” said Chris Boies, LFCC Vice President of Finance and Administrative Services. “The plan for these improvements came from suggestions by our campus Police Department, students, staff, and visitors.”
While construction has limited parking at the College during the summer, the majority of the work is expected to be completed during the first two weeks of Fall Semester on August 22nd. Students and visitors to the campus should be alert for changes in access and parking areas. Campus Police and other staff will be available during the first week of classes to assist with direction and parking issues.
