New campus lot to help relieve upcoming parking shortage

RELEASED: July 16, 2010

EAU CLAIRE — To help alleviate the shortage of visitor and metered parking due to upcoming campus construction projects, a new 117-stall parking lot is being constructed between Zorn Arena and Schneider Hall at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

The lot, which will contain a combination of designated visitor spaces and metered spaces, will be open before fall semester classes start Sept. 2, said Terry Classen, UW-Eau Claire director of Facilities Planning and Management.

The majority of the spaces will be metered to make up for the loss of metered spaces outside of Phillips Hall and Davies Center during the construction of a new university student center, said Kimberly O'Kelly, UW-Eau Claire coordinator of parking and transportation. The metered area will be either partially or fully reserved for visitors as needed for conferences, workshops and events, she said.

Sod and trees being removed to make way for the $85,000 asphalt lot will be reused in various locations across campus, Classen said.
