Parking Changes: less spaces, more safety

By: Molly Gase
The parking lot between the Exchange parking deck on Carroll street and the Schrank parking decks are now no longer available for students to park in.

According to a recent zipmail, the changes are in order to “increase pedestrian safety” and to allow cars to more easily move through this space. The two-way road way provides a quick connection for cars to travel from Carroll street, near the Student Union, to Exchange street.

The changes will result in a loss of 21 spaces, however they will hopefully decrease the congestion that would previously lock-up the area.
