Contractors are currently working to grade an access road north and south across the NSC, connecting 105th and 109th Avenues NE. The grading is in preparation for the laying of asphalt on this road. At the south end, the road connects to a roundabout on 105th Ave. NE. The north end is a right-in, right-out access point on 109th. The road provides access to parking lots F and G on the north side of the NSC campus. These lots are the main parking sites for the N and P field blocks, as well as other fields on the NSC north campus.
