Traffic and Parking Updates
With the construction of a new academic building and the continued implementation of the campus master plan, there will be several changes to traffic patterns and parking over the next 12 months.
November 20, 2012 Update
Due to work being done on the parking lot to the rear of LeClerc Hall the following parking restrictions will be necessary. Starting on Tuesday, November 20 at 10:30 PM the parking lot to the rear of LeClerc Hall and A Child’s Place will be restricted. This work is scheduled to be completed by Friday, November 23 and normal parking may resume at 6 PM on that date.
September 7, 2012 Update
Site preparations are underway for the construction of the new Morrissy House, which will be located next to Cana House and is expected to be completed in spring 2013.
A ceremonial groundbreaking for the new academic building is set for Wednesday, September 12. Excavation work will begin shortly thereafter and the project is scheduled for completion by August 2013.
The roof of Rice Hall, damaged during a recent storm, is currently being repaired. Also during September, roof repairs will begin on Fourier and Gibbons Hall.
New Parking and Traffic Patterns
A new 80 space parking lot near the tennis courts is finished and ready for use as a general parking area for the entire campus community, guests and visitors. In the next week, a staircase and walkway will be installed to allow for easy pedestrian access around the construction site. The attached campus construction map illustrates the new traffic patterns and parking plan.
Other campus parking changes include:
- Additional visitor and handicapped parking spaces have been added to the lot behind Noyes House. These spaces replace those removed from Doyle Circle.
- Handicapped spaces have been added to the lots behind LeClerc Hall, Knott Science Center and G. Avery Bunting Hall.
- The lot behind LeClerc Hall is now designated as a faculty/staff parking area.
Please note that additional campus parking is available daily from 6 am – 6 pm at the Knights of Columbus facility lot, located just east of the University's Homeland Avenue entrance.
Check back frequently for updates on these and other projects in the coming weeks. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to improve and enhance our beautiful campus. We will provide you with as much advanced notice as possible as changes are implemented so that you may plan accordingly.
