Traffic alerts & lot closures
Parking and mobility on and/or near campus will be affected during the following times:
Garage 5 Elevators Temporarily Out of Order
The elevators in Parking Garage 5 are currently out of order (as of 2 p.m. Monday, Nov. 11). The cause of the problem and timeline for repair completion are not yet known.
Two PGH/Zone E Shuttle Stops Temporarily Closed
The entrance into parking lot 8A directly across from the Cullen Oaks apartment community has been temporarily closed to accommodate work on the Cullen Boulevard improvement project.
As a result of this closure, the PGH/Zone E shuttle buses will not be able to pick up or drop off passengers at the shuttle stops in 8A and in front of Cullen Oaks. This will be the case until the 8A entrance is re-opened. That is not expected to happen for several weeks.
Please note: the Circulator 1 and Circulator 2 shuttle routes will still be servicing the Cullen Oaks shuttle stop.
University Drive Access to Lot 1B Temporarily Blocked
Starting Friday, Nov. 1, access to gated lot 1B from University Drive will be temporarily blocked to accommodate work on a sidewalk improvement project. Lot 1B parkers will need to use the entrance off Calhoun Road to get to lot 1B during this time. The temporary closure is expected to last several weeks.
The faculty/staff/student entrance to Garage 5 from the Loop Road will be closed through the remainder of the fall semester 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.
