Pedestrian and Parking Update, December 16, 2019rsevers
New Pedestrian Signs
Look for new pedestrian signs along sidewalks in the Capitol Complex. The six-foot, red, sandwich-board signs have been refreshed with updated maps and a QR code for easier access to the online campus map. Use your smart phone to scan the QR code and open a pdf of the Capitol Complex map you can take along with you.
