East Deck Visitor Parking and East Deck 1 ramp will be closed for upgrade work May 14–August 1, 2012. Faculty/staff with gate cards may park in the upper levels by entering East Deck 2 from Van Landingham Road.
Visitor Parking for 2012
Between May 21 and August 1, East Deck Visitor Parking will move East Deck 3, Level 1, entering from Van Landingham Road. A flat $5.00 fee will be charged for visitor parking. An attendant will collect parking fees/tokens and assist visitors at a pay station located at the stairwell near the pedestrian exit.
East Deck 3 Visitor Payment Options
Options for payment in the temporary East Deck 3 visitor area are limited to credit card, coin or token. Bills will not be accepted for payment due to the functionality of the temporary equipment.
The flat $5.00 fee to park in East Deck 3 has been set to make payment simpler for visitors who wish to park there. Those who need to use cash or prefer to pay by the hour may park in either the Cone or Union Decks (Cone and Union Visitor Decks take cash, credit cards and tokens).
Improvements Being Made
This East Deck 1 upgrade will make the entire deck a combined faculty/staff and visitor area. All vehicles will access the deck using the entrance currently reserved for visitors. The exit on Level 1 will be two lanes, one for faculty/staff and the other for both visitors and faculty/staff. The exit on Level 2 will continue to operate for faculty/staff only. The deck will no longer have an attendant. A “pay-on-foot” station will allow visitors to pay their fee and retrieve a validated ticket. To exit, visitors will put the validated ticket into an exit verifier to open the gate.
