West Parking Garage Construction
Starting Thursday morning September 14, 2017, the student commuter parking lot on Oakland St. across from Margo Jones and between the Baptist Student Center and the Marketing/HR building will be taken out of service with barricades barring the entrances. This is the construction site for the new West Parking Garage which will accommodate approximately 600 vehicles and TWU's Department of Public Safety and Human Resources. In addition, the parking lots behind Marketing / HR at Third and Austin Streets also will be closed for the contractor's job trailer and equipment area. On Friday, September 15th perimeter fencing and gates will be installed around these sites and on Monday, September 18th the construction contractor will mobilize on the site and begin construction.
The majority of the construction activities will be conducted inside the fenced areas, however, there will be some utility work done on Oakland that will require some temporary rerouting of traffic around that portion of the work. Please be observant when walking, driving golf carts or driving vehicles in this area. The project is expected to be completed by October 2018. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Donald Strickland - Director, Construction Services email@example.com.
As a reminder, the remote parking lot north of University/380 at Woodland and Frame Streets was built to help relieve the displacement of parking for the construction of this parking garage. The remote lot has a complimentary shuttle service to the main campus from 7:30 am to 5:15 pm, Monday - Thursday.

For those commuting on I-35, consider parking at the MedPark Station and riding for free to the Downtown Denton Transit Center (buses 5 and 6 connect to campus.) On Monday, September 18th, DCTA will launch a new Transit Tracker system which will provide real time information for the buses and trains. For more information, go to https://www.dcta.net/.
