Painting, maintenance will affect parking availability

UPDATED May 13, 2013

UPDATE 5/13/13: To access a Google Map of closed and open lots on your mobile device, visit http://goo.gl/maps/HPvqk. This map also is included at the bottom of this page.

Also, be aware that construction on the southwest side of campus may cause temporary lane or street closures on University Terrace and South Green Drive. Watch #OhioUBuilds on Twitter for up-to-date traffic information.

Although many of Ohio University's residential parking garages will be open for use this summer, each will be closed at some point for painting and maintenance. Transportation and Parking Services has released its summer garage and maintenance schedule, so please be aware of when garages and lots will be closed for maintenance.

Garages on West, South and East greens will be available for those with faculty/staff and valid summer student parking permits from early May through mid-August. That will make up for spaces lost in lots that are closing permanently or temporarily for construction projects around campus. (Click here for information.)

Below is the summer garage and lot closing schedule. Lot and garage closures also are listed on Compass' Announcements page. Lot painting depends on the weather, so those dates are subject to change. If you have questions, contact Parking Services at (740) 593-1917.

All/most of the summer

  • Sargent, Ryors and Boyd garages and Lot 119 (Boyd/Treudley) will be inaccessible all summer because Oxbow Trail will be closed during the rehabilitation of the Oxbow Bridge on Richland Avenue. These garages will reopen on August 21.

What about accessibility?

According to Marty Paulins, director of Transportation and Parking Services, none of the parking lots that will be closed either temporarily or permanently offers handicap-accessible spots. Several handicap-only parking spots will be added to the Nelson Commons Garage, though, as the South Green area has few such spots now. In addition, two handicap-only parking spaces will be added to Lot 133 (the small Peden lot) when it is reopened in January 2014.

Baker University Center will remain the primary accessible pedestrian route between Upper and Lower Campus. Be advised, however, that in the summer Baker closes at 6 p.m. Mon.–Sat. and is closed all day on Sunday.

Employees with questions or concerns about accessibility issues should contact the Office for Institutional Equity, Crewson House, 593-1007. Students with accessibility concerns should contact the Office for Disability Services, 348 Baker University Center, 593-2620.
