  • On Friday, February 9, signage was installed stating the lot is closed February 14-16 at the specific section of the Brooks Center lot which is being converted to employee spaces.
  • Barricades will be installed the evening of Tuesday, February 13, to officially close the lot February 14-16 for restriping.

E-21 is shown as offline with -159 employee spaces and -19 reserved spaces. A subsection reads that state vehicles go to C-14 with transit service to Brooks Center and ADA patrons are directed to C-11. C-11 will have +150 employee spaces, +4 EV chargers (Level II) and +10 reserved spaces for -14 total net spaces. A smaller map shows the Seneca River Basin (C-14) to Brooks Route with a dotted purple line and bus icon traveling from the C-14 lot to the Brooks Center and back.

Commuters affected by this change have several alternatives for traveling to the Brooks Center area:

  • Commuters can park at the East Park-N-Ride P-7 and P-8 lots, where shuttles offer six-to-ten minute service to the Academic Success Center.
  • After 4:30 p.m., students can park in employee spaces, including those at the Brooks Center.

All state and government vehicles parking in the E-21 lot will need to relocate to the C-14 lot by Monday, February 19.  Transit service is available to and from the Brooks Center and the Seneca River Basin lot.
