Lyon parking ramp employee entrance closed for catwalk repairs

Crews making repairs to the catwalks crossing Lyon Street will shift their work to the north side of the street starting Tuesday, July 7.

This will require the employee entrance and exit to the Lyon parking ramp to be closed until Friday, July 17, weather permitting.

Employees are asked to use the student entrance off Bostwick Avenue, and then make the left turn — just past the first pillar — down to the employee parking levels. Spectrum Health employees are still using the student/public levels — levels 4 through 7 — of the ramp and they probably will be full.

Employees also are welcome to park in the Bostwick parking ramp, using the Ransom Street entrance, as all gates are still up.
