YSU parking deck is now a brighter place

Youngstown

When Youngstown State University students return to campus next month, they’ll be greeted by a brighter version of the Lincoln Avenue parking deck they left last spring.

The second and final phase of a project to repair the deck, called the M2, started shortly after the end of classes and Danny O’Connell, director of support services at YSU, says it’s on track for completion before the start of fall classes.

“Last year, we did the work to save the deck, but other than the ramps, students didn’t really notice it,” he said. “This year when they come back, they’ll really see the difference.”

The gray concrete inside the deck is being stained white, which will seal the structure from water. It also serves to create a brighter atmosphere. The yellow lights are being replaced with LED lights that O’Connell says will save the university money because of energy efficiency.

“It makes a huge difference in the brightness,” he said.

The project, estimated at about $1,050,000, was bid along with the project to perform preventive maintenance on the M1 deck, located on Wick Avenue. The M1 portion is about $450,000.
