A map of construction near the Kohl Center and LaBahn Arena

Lot 7 (Grainger Hall Garage)

The left lane of University Avenue is closed from Park Street to Orchard Street. Use a temporary left-turn lane to access Lot 7 from University via Brooks Street.

Lot 29 (N. Park Street Ramp)

If arriving from the east, take East Washington Avenue to Regent Street and enter Lot 29 via the East Campus Mall entrance to avoid a lane closure on Regent near Park Street.

It is recommended all Lot 29 visitors use the East Campus Mall pedestrian tunnel when walking to and returning from the Kohl Center or LaBahn Arena.

When leaving Lot 29, westbound traffic is advised to use the East Campus Mall exit for a right-turn onto Regent Street. It is recommended eastbound traffic avoid Regent by using the Park Street exit to reach Johnson Street.

Lot 44

Dayton Street is closed to westbound traffic near the Park Street intersection. Vehicles traveling westbound can reach Lot 44 by using University Avenue (via Brooks Street) or Regent Street (via Mills Street).

Lot 46 (Lake & Johnson Ramp)

If arriving via Gorham/University Avenue, turn left onto Frances Street for a right-turn entrance into Lot 46. If arriving via Johnson Street, turn left onto Lake Street for a right-turn entrance.

Vehicles are advised to turn right onto Lake Street when exiting Lot 46. To go west, use Lake to reach University. To go east, continue northward on Lake to reach Langdon Street or briefly use University to reach Park Street and Regent Street.

Lot 48

Dayton Street is eastbound-only between Park Street and Lake Street for through traffic. If arriving westbound, Lot 48 is still accessible because the block between Lake and East Campus Mall is open to local traffic.

Vehicles must turn right onto Dayton when exiting Lot 48. To go west, consider using Frances Street instead of Lake Street. There may be heavy congestion on Lake due to event traffic exiting Lot 46. Eastbound vehicles can continue on Dayton to reach Bassett or Broom Street.

Lot 51

Dayton Street is closed to westbound traffic near the Park Street intersection. Vehicles traveling westbound can access Lot 51 by using University Avenue, Spring Street or Regent Street to reach Mills Street.

Lot 87

Dayton Street is eastbound-only between Park Street and Lake Street. Vehicles are advised to turn right onto Dayton when exiting Lot 87. To go west, consider using Frances Street instead of Lake Street. There may be heavy congestion on Lake due to event traffic exiting Lot 46. Eastbound vehicles can continue on Dayton to reach Bassett or Broom Street.

Lot 91

To avoid possible congestion near other event lots, vehicles parking in Lot 91 are advised to use East Washington Avenue to reach Bedford Street when arriving, and the reverse route for departure.
