EAU CLAIRE — Due to remodeling, snow removal and student housing modifications, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Parking and Transportation Services office has implemented several parking and bus service changes.
With the current remodeling of Phillips Science Hall, 14 guaranteed faculty ("GF") parking spaces behind Phillips and 20 meter spaces on the west side of the building will be used as a staging area for equipment, materials and construction foreman parking for at least a year. (Faculty who purchased "GF" permits should have no difficulty locating parking spots, however, because there are 14 fewer individuals with "GF" parking privileges this semester.) The remodeling project will be completed in September 2001, and it is not known yet if parking spaces will be reclaimed before then. Because of the need to move equipment and material in and out of the job site, motorists will not be permitted to park and wait for openings at meters. Students are encouraged to use the campus bus service.
The university bus routes will run on a 20-minute schedule — instead of the previous 30 minutes — because students no longer live at the Holiday Inn-Campus Area. The Water Street and Stein Boulevard buses will change direction at Kjer Theatre, meaning, for example, the Stein bus will become the Water Street bus at the Kjer stop.
To assist with snow removal on campus, motorists are required to park in the following areas after 1 a.m.: Schneider's meter lot, the Visitor's Center lot, the first row of the Fine Arts lot facing Haas Fine Arts Center, or the first row of the McPhee lot.
Because University Drive is heavily traveled, the university has implemented a snow removal policy in effect until March 15. Between 1 and 7 a.m. every day, vehicles may not park in metered spaces between Oakridge and Bridgeman halls on University Drive. A $20 ticket will be issued to those motorists who do park in those spaces.
