Shovels hit the dirt Friday as Sacramento State broke ground for construction of its new parking structure.
Parking Structure V, announced in September, is being built by West Sacramento firm Clark Pacific and will house about 1,700 spaces over six stories, adjacent to the university’s athletic center.
President Robert Nelsen posted a celebratory photo on Twitter.
Building is expected to be finished in less than eight months and the structure is supposed to open in the spring 2018 semester.
Parking issues will loom in the meantime, as students will be left with hundreds fewer spaces in the fall semester.
