UH northbound traffic in the area can enter campus from Old Spanish Trail to Martin Luther King Blvd. Please note that this phase of construction is expected to last a minimum of 120 days. 

What to Do When Text to Pay Service is Not Working

When parking in any of the orange text to pay/virtual meter visitor parking spaces on campus, if the service is not working, you should use the visitor parking sections of the parking garages instead. If your vehicle remains in the text to pay/virtual meter space and you do not pay because the service is out, then you are at risk of being issued a citation.
