Parking: Lots of improvement for fall
With thousands of students, faculty, and staff arriving on the campus, Monday, Aug. 25, there will be a few new parking spaces to ease the load. A new lot (referred to as lot D, behind University and Kays Hall) will add 45 spaces.
     Formerly, the grass lot was used by students as they made their own spaces, often times being issued parking citations. Originally this was going to be a gravel surface lot. However, it was recently decided to pave and stripe the lot. This new parking area will be general student parking – open to anyone.
     In addition, the gravel lot east of the ABI building under construction will be paved and striped student parking (accommodating 300 vehicles). And, the lot behind the College of Business was upgraded this summer to alleviate flooding and drainage issues.
     The planned "Kays Field" lot by the College of Communications has been delayed. This project is going to be initiated in the spring, and will be completed next summer to be ready by fall 2004. It will be a combination of reserved and open student parking. (The present parking areas beside the library will become reserved parking, and Kays field will become open parking with around 300 spaces.)
Did you know that there are currently 7,606 parking spaces – reserved, open and deck spaces –- on the campus of ASU?
