Basilica to resurface aging parking lots, lots will be closed during resurfacing

Revised August 5th

The summertime offers the Basilica of Saint Mary the best window of opportunity to upgrade and resurface our aging parking lots. Even though our contractor began resurfacing work on July 29, they were unable to complete the job by August 3 due to rain and other issues. They will finish the work later this month, which means there will be some intermittent closures of our parking lots again.

All of our lots will be closed on Wednesday, August 12 and Thursday, August 13. The Wolfe Street lot will have additional closures on Tuesday, August 18 and Friday, August 28. Thank you for your patience as we have this work completed.
