Construction to affect campus parking

Spectrum Volume 18 Issue 36 - July 25, 1996

Paving of campus parking lots is proceeding on schedule. The Arrington, Caldwell, and Stanger lots have been paved, striped, and have reopened, as has the campus mall. Fifty six additional spaces will be gained from the construction.

However, more disruption is ahead. According to Curtis Lynch, director of Parking Services, the Donaldson Brown Hotel and Conference Center (DBHCC) lot, parts of which have been open for visitor parking during the past week, will be completely closed from August 28 until September 8, when it is scheduled to reopen for normal use.

During the time the DBHCC lot is closed, 25 spaces in the Media Building parking lot will be reassigned for visitor use. Lynch recommends faculty and staff members who normally use either of those lots park on Washington Street.

According to Lynch, faculty and staff members may park on both sides of Washington Street, including commuter spaces, without being ticketed until the DBHCC lot re-opens.

Meters belonging to the university on Washington Street have been bagged, as have meters on the mall and in the Shultz lot.

Lynch reminds faculty and staff members that space is available in new lots on Stanger Street and in the faculty/staff section of student commuter B lot. Faculty and staff parking also is available behind Squires in the Shultz parking lot.
