Orange Lot Expansion Construction Impact

The Orange Lot, located at the corner of University and Alumni Drives, is currently undergoing construction to expand the lot and to add an additional entrance and exit. Construction associated with this project has blocked a number of parking spaces in the south and southwest portions of the lot to facilitate construction. During periods of peak demand, employees may experience parking shortages in this lot until construction is complete. Employees with E and EK permits are authorized to park in the Red and Blue Lots, located on the east side of University Drive adjacent to Kroger Field. Since demand is lower in these lots during the summer months, the Red and Blue Lots provide a good alternative during peak demand in the Orange Lot.

The construction project is expected to be completed by Monday, August 21. At the conclusion of the construction, the Orange Lot will gain an additional 175 parking spaces. In addition, the lot will be accessible from Alumni Drive for westbound traffic. Westbound traffic leaving the lot will also be able to exit the Orange Lot onto Alumni Drive.
