|Accessible parking spaces have been moved|
Earlier this semester the Parking Office sent out information which explained that Second Avenue North would close to public driving access in the not-to-distant future. When the plan is implemented completely, access to Second Avenue will be reserved for police, delivery and service vehicles that are on service calls.
In anticipation of this return to strict control of vehicle access to Second Avenue, several parking changes have been implemented. There are now nine accessible parking stalls located on Cornell Steet between the Ramp and Swanson Hall and there are an additional four service vehicle stalls. There are also four accessible parking stalls north of the Memorial Union and four accessible parking stalls south of O’Kelly Hall.
Now that additional accessible parking spaces have been identified and signage is in place, accessible parking stalls will be removed from Second Avenue based on the following schedule:
1. All parking on the south side of Second Avenue will revert to No Parking Zone Thursday, Dec. 6.
2. All accessible parking spaces will be removed from the north side of Second Avenue Monday, Dec. 17.
After Dec. 17, the only vehicles allowed to park on Second Avenue will be state fleet or identified delivery vehicles. These vehicles will not be allowed to park on this street for occupants to attend meetings or for their convenience. We will proceed with plans to install intercom service, camera capabilities and gate control on the gate by the Law School as soon as we can. This final step will remove all public driving access from this street.
The service vehicle stalls currently located next to the south Memorial Union wall (previously referred to as the bookstore loading dock) cause numerous vehicle/pedestrian interactions daily. This area will become a No Parking Zone Monday, Dec. 17. Our intent is to promote pedestrian safety in this area as much as we can.
Thank you in advance for your patience with these changes. If you have any further questions about these changes, please call me at 777-3655. – Tim Lee, UND parking services manager.
