Construction Updates

Construction scheduling continues to prove to be a challenge. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience, and thank you for your support in improving our infrastructure and the needs of your fellow Veterans.

Veterans and visitors – To help ease our parking challenges, we have expanded our valet parking services and are looking for additional capacity. In order to help reduce your parking frustrations, we highly encourage you take advantage of our FREE Valet service to make your visit with us less stressful. When able, we also suggest that you arrive early to allow for additional time to park and reach your appointment location safely. Additionally, you may also park in the North Parking Lots, and walk or ride our shuttle bus service to your desired location.

Employees – Please take advantage of our Transit Benefits (bus, vanpool, carpool, bicycle) to help alleviate your driving and parking frustrations. For more information, please call our Human Resources Service at 562-826-5651. 

MOST RECENT UPDATE

  • We are starting to build our new Community Living Center; therefore, most of the eastside of our campus will be fenced. Please utilize the roads on the westside of our campus to access the parking lots located on the back/north of our campus. Parking spaces that fall within construction zone will also be inaccessible.
  • Gate #3 is open!

PERMANENT CHANGES

  • Portions of three roads (Elm, Sam Johnson and Carob) were converted to one-way roads, so one of their lanes became side-road parking. That’s 80 more parking spaces!

TEMPORARY CHANGES

  • Portions of both Pine and Palm roads are currently closed to allow construction of our future Mental Health buildings (southwest of our campus).
    The eight handicap parking spaces located by this construction zone have also been temporarily closed.
    We estimate to re-open roads and handicap parking space by Fall 2019. 
  • Construction fencing has been placed along the Southwest corner of Pine Road. As a result, pedestrian traffic traveling North/South adjacent the Fisher House is no longer accessible due to safety concerns for our employees and Veterans. All pedestrian traffic coming to and from parking lots on the North end of the campus, must enter the facility via the entrance located in building 2. Building 2 can be reached by walking past building 46 or via Carob Road.
