[Published Dec. 2018]

Parking permit holders are advised to avoid using the Knight Management Center Garage and Roble Field Garage between Dec. 22, 2018, and Jan. 6, 2019. All cars left in these garages during the dates designated for garage cleaning will be subject to towing at the owner’s expense.

Residential permit holders with designations ‘WE’ and residents who park after hours in the Knight Management Center Garage should move their cars before leaving for winter closure. Commuters, motorcyclists, disabled-access permit holders and visitors should seek parking in other garages or surface lots as alternatives. Please refer to our map of affected garages for garage locations and nearby parking alternatives.

Crews will use leaf blowers, street sweepers, high-pressured water, and steam to clean underground structures. Staff will also check that garages are up to code, including inspecting smoke detectors and sump pumps.

Bicycles left in bike cages will not be removed, but may be affected by cleaning activities.

Parking alternatives for ‘A’- and ‘C’-permit holders:

Most commuter and visitor parking areas, except those near the hospitals and the School of Medicine, will not be enforced. Commuters may use most lots as alternatives if they are displaced due to garage cleaning, since parking enforcement during the winter closure will be limited. Please refer to our article on holiday parking impacts for more information.

Parking alternatives for ‘WE’-permit holders include:

  • Searsville Lot (L-22)

  • Governor’s Corner South Lot (L-27)
