Road Construction to Affect the Archives

2 03 2018

Beginning March 5 and ending around November 15, 2018, the MSU Archives will be affected by road construction that will take place on Wilson and Fee Road. The plan is for the roads and the parking lots to switch places, so the parking lots are closer to the buildings. That way, people will not have to cross the busy streets to get to the campus buildings. This construction will greatly affect the Archives and Fee Hall, since Wilson and Fee Roads will be closed. The Archives has been assured that there will be parking spots available, but getting to those spots might be difficult in the upcoming weeks.

If you are planning on visiting the Archives anytime this year, it would be best to look at the MSU Infrastructure Planning and Facilities Construction website,, for the most up-to-date information and detour maps before arriving. If you need further clarification, you can contact the Archives at 517-355-2330 or and we will do our best to direct you to the nearest available parking.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this will cause.
