Parking on Oak Lane (west) will closed to parking on or about Monday, August 1, 2016.  [Oak Lane runs east to west and is located between Whitney Road and Gilbert Road.]  The closure of these twenty-seven parking space is associated with the demolition of several Faculty Row houses that are situated on the South Commons.  These same parking spaces will then remain unavailable throughout the construction of the Student Recreation Center, which is expected to open in January 2018.

Storrs: Dodd Lot Closes for Construction on Monday, August 1st. 

The Dodd parking lot will close for construction on Monday, August 1, and is expected to remain closed for three weeks (scheduled reopening on Monday, August 22nd.)  While the Dodd Lot is closed, vehicular traffic on Whitney Road will be one-way (westbound) from Mansfield Road, to the Whitney Road Extension, and on to Gilbert Road.  Service deliveries displaced from the Dodd Lot will be accommodated immediately across from the lot’s entry (on the south side of Whitney Road).  The lot closure is required to facilitate the installation of new infrastructure needed to support the University’s new Fit Rec Center.
