STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Mississippi State University has been approved to build a planned $12 million parking garage to the north side of the campus.

The university says this will add 500 parking spaces to that side of the campus.

The new structure will be located next to Howell Hall, near Humphrey Coliseum and Davis Wade Stadium.

MSU President Mark Keenum says the new garage will help meet the growing demand for campus parking.

In addition to the 500 spaces in the garage, the university is planning to add approximately 350 parking spaces in a surface parking lot at the north end of the old intramural fields, adjacent to Fresh Food Company.

Both construction projects are expected to be completed next year.
