Parking and Transportation Services will be performing maintenance on various lots and entrances during the summer break. The projects will be planned to minimize disruption and impact on customers.

Concrete repairs are planned for Entrance 1 near Calhoun Street, Entrance 4 near Moody Towers and the Welcome Center Garage, entrance 11 near Cullen, and entrance 14. These repairs may involve temporary lane closures or restrictions which will result in minor traffic disruptions. Although one lane of traffic will remain open for traffic at all times, drivers are encouraged to be aware of the construction in these areas and seek alternate routes when appropriate to avoid delays.

Parking lot repairs are also scheduled during this time. Lots 1E, 4A, 8A, 9C, 12A, 15D, 16B, 16D, 18A, 19B, 19C and 20A will undergo preventative asphalt maintenance. Areas of these lots will be unavailable for parking during these repairs. Additionally, lot 18A will be seal-coated and restriped as a part of this project. This lot will be unavailable during the seal-coating project.

Parking and Transportation Services is working to schedule any work involving larger portions of a lot to occur during non-peak times to minimize the impact on customers. PTS encourages all drivers to be aware of these projects to ensure the safety of workers.

Additional updates will be communicated on the UH Parking and Transportation Services website at as needed. Additionally, the PTS Facebook and Twitter pages will be updated throughout the projects with any additional information.
