UA expands size of parking project;
access will be limited to Exchange deck

mapHere’s a silver lining to the down economy: UA has decided to expand the size of the parking deck project on the south side of campus to take advantage of lower labor and materials costs.

Work began in March for the first phase of the project, which will create 522 spaces. But now with bids coming in 9 percent below original estimates, UA has decided to proceed with the full project. Work will begin Monday, May 11.

“The contractors are giving us excellent pricing because they want the work,” said Ted Curtis, vice president for capital planning and facilities management. “At the same time, we’re pleased to play a role in stimulating the local economy and creating or sustaining jobs in the construction, trucking and manufacturing industries.”

When finished in fall 2010, the new six-level South Campus Parking Deck, with space for 1,324 vehicles, will be UA’s second largest deck, behind the West Campus (or Polsky) deck. The new deck will extend from East Exchange Street north to the Exchange Street Parking Deck and Schrank Hall South. It will stretch along Exchange Street from Sumner Street to Buckeye Street, the distance of about two football fields on the north side of Exchange Street.

Starting May 11, motorists going to the Exchange Street Deck will have to use Carroll Street. Parking Services and Capital Planning are working on plans to improve traffic flow in and out of the Exchange Street deck for the fall.

Parking in lot 22 May 7
Time: n/a
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Right around this time of year, during move out, residence students (primarily those who live in Honors, Bulger, Ritchie, and Spantan) attempt to make their move easier by parking their cars as close to their residence hall as possible; the ever so popular lot 22 located in front of Ritchie and Bulger and directly behind Honors, as well as the College St turnaround, have been the prime target for parking citations at the end of every school year.


One of the duties of the Judicial Branch of ASG is to render decisions on student appeals of parking citations, and every May we hear on average around 3,000 dollars worth of appeals which strictly pertain to lot 22 and the College St turnaround. Residence students in these halls need to know to NOT park in disability spaces (without a valid disability and university
placard) and to NOT leave their cars in fire lanes, regardless of how temporary the time may be. Flashers or hazard lights do NOT justify illicit parking.


To help you in your move the Judicial Branch and ASG offer this advice:


1) While it is true that you are NOT allowed to park in a disability space without the proper placards, there is one exception. Parking Services and UAPD have authorized a "lift" of prohibiting parking in disability spaces ONLY in disability spaces in lot 22 and ONLY during the following times: 1) Wed May 6th from 11-7, 2) Thurs May 7th from 11-7, and 3) Fri May 8th from 9-7. NOTE: This is only permitted when there are police officers on duty in lot 22 and when there are bags placed over the disability signs. A bag placed over any parking sign on campus signifies that the space is open to the public, and a police officer is the ONLY person who has the authority to allow someone who is not disabled to use a disability space. More information regarding this should appear in ZipLine in the coming weeks.


2) If you're thinking you can use disability spaces or fire lane areas in the dead of night and get away with it, you'd be wrong. Last year the majority of appeals in these areas (most of which were denied) were written at night; some as late as 3am. Police and Parking Services attendants ticket 24/7 and are especially keen to write citations for these particular violations.


3) So where can you park? Lot 26 (North Deck) has a few short term 30 minute parking spaces as well Lot 22. These spaces are labeled with appropriate signage and will be strictly enforced as they will be in high demand.
