Gravel Lot 16G in Zone A Has Been Closed Permanently
Parking lot 16G, which is in Zone A, has permanently closed. The ungated gravel lot is being returned to Campus Recreation, who allowed Parking and Transportation Services to utilize it over the past several years. Temporary barricades have been put in place until permanent ones are installed. As a reminder, moving a barricade to park in the lot could result in the vehicle being towed.
The faculty/staff/student entrance to Garage 5 from the Loop Road remains closed to allow workers to complete construction work on the building while ensuring the safety of all those who utilize the garage. The entrance from Elgin remains open.
Entrance 14 Construction Traffic (ongoing)
There will be ongoing construction traffic along Entrance 14 as a result of a construction project at Science and Research 1. Sidewalks and some parking spaces will also be impacted.
The various driveway entrances from Cullen Boulevard into the Zone E parking lots (8A and 9C) will be closed periodically as work continues on the Cullen Boulevard road improvement project. When one entrance is closed, access will still be open on the others.
Garage 6 Construction Parking Impacts
Construction started this summer on Garage 6. All of Lots 20A and 20C are closed to facilitate the construction. The East Garage is only accessible from the Spur 5 access lanes. Traffic travelling south on I-45 should exit Cullen and follow the feeder road through the Elgin intersection.
