South Drive reopened today, July 31, as a one-way to the west. This rerouting will provide an additional avenue to Shields Street from the west side of campus. Original post (July 17) South Drive will be reversed from a one-way east to a one-way west to ease traffic congestion on campus. The road and parking along the road will be closed from July 23-30 to reconfigure the street and 236 parking spaces. Access to Hartshorn and other buildings along the drive will be maintained via detour routes posted with signs. South Drive will reopen as a one-way west on July 31.
Parking and Transportation Services will present to various groups across campus on potential models for parking on campus to accommodate infrastructure changes. “This is a vibrant time for Colorado State University, and our new efforts to improve campus buildings and make room for an expanded student, faculty and staff population, while maintaining a commitment to green space, calls for an evaluation of how the university will address the demand for parking and alternative transportation,” said David Bradford, director of Parking and Transportation Services. The university’s commitment to maintaining current green areas on campus means that new construction often occurs on existing parking lots. To help address the loss of parking space inventory, Parking and Transportation Services and the university have increased alternative transportation systems to better serve employees and students. In addition, Parking and Transportation Services is exploring sustainable parking models for campus and seeking comment and input on options. The following presentations have been scheduled:
- Administrative Professional Counsel meeting, 8:30 a.m., Monday, Oct. 13, in Lory Student Center Rooms 372-374. Open to all administrative professional staff.
