Traffic alerts & lot closures
Parking and mobility on and/or near campus will be affected during the following times:
Loop Road Entrance to Elgin Street Garage Now Open
The faculty/staff/student entrance to Garage 5 (Elgin Street Garage) from the Loop Road has reopened. It had been closed for several months to allow workers to complete construction work on the building while ensuring the safety of all those who utilize the garage.
Temporary Shuttle Stops Set Up at Cullen Oaks
Parking and Transportation Services has set up a temporary shuttle stop at the main entrance to Cullen Oaks to replace the shuttle stop that was demolished as part of the Cullen Boulevard improvement project. This temporary stop will serve the PGH/Zone E shuttle route and the Zone Circulator 2 shuttle route. In addition, the shuttle stop on the northbound side of Cullen Boulevard that serves the Zone Circulator 1 shuttle route has been temporarily moved. This map shows the location for that temporary stop.
Stadium Garage Used for Home Basketball Games
The Stadium Garage is used for game parking for home men's and women's basketball games. Stadium Garage permit holders are still able to access the garage without having to pay by showing the gate attendant their valid Stadium Garage parking permit. Holman Street and Cullen Boulevard may experience more traffic in the two hours leading up to the game.

Gravel Lot 16G in Zone A Has Been Closed Permanently

The ungated gravel lot is being returned to Campus Recreation, who allowed Parking and Transportation Services to utilize it over the past several years. Temporary barricades have been put in place until permanent ones are installed. As a reminder, moving a barricade to park in the lot could result in the vehicle being towed.

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.
