Lot 62

Cars parked in Lot 62 near Bud Walton Arena on Feb. 6. Part of Lot 62 will become a 24-hour, seven-day a week faculty and staff parking area starting Feb. 7.

The permit access designation of two parking lots changed on Feb. 7, as a result of the Jan. 28 meeting of the Transit, Parking and Traffic Committee.

David Wilson, Transit and Parking communications director said the ramp portion of Lot 62, near Bud Walton Arena and Adohi Residence Hall, is now a 24-hour, seven-day a week faculty and staff parking area.

Lot 46W, located near Dills Indoor Tennis Center, changed from a faculty and staff lot to a green student lot. Students will not be able to park at Lot 46W overnight.

Transit and Parking officials made Lot 46W a green lot because many students have been parking in Lot 46E and taking the bus up to campus, Wilson said.

UA bus route 48 and route 11 pick up passengers from Lot 46.

The sign for Lot 46W has already been updated, Wilson said. The sign for Lot 62 was expected to be updated on Thursday or Friday.

The Lot 62 change will mainly effect residents of Pomfret and Adohi Residence Halls, Wilson said. Students with green, orange or red resident reserved permits may still park in the rest of Lot 62 after hours and on the weekends.

Officials made the change because some students were not moving their vehicle out of Lot 62 before 7 a.m. and were getting citations, Wilson said.

Transit and Parking officials hope the change will reduce the amount of students getting tickets and the amount of students’ cars in faculty and staff spots, Wilson said.

“If two or three people are getting tickets because they forgot to move their vehicle, that’s two or three too many,” Wilson said.

The Transit, Parking and Traffic Committee meets monthly.
