Update on the Campus Entrance Project - January 2015

January 23, 2015 12:40 PM

Work on the campus entrance project has transitioned to Administration Drive and the surrounding areas, creating several changes to vehicle, parking, and pedestrian patterns that will remain in effect throughout the remainder of the winter session, extending into spring 2015.

  • Administration Drive no longer acts as a thoroughfare. The drive only offers access to Admin Garage and the RAC drop-off circle.
  • Several bays on both levels of the Admin Garage, as well as the original upper level entrance have been closed during demolition.
  • ADA accessible Admin Garage parking has been relocated to the lower level, and an accessible route to campus has been provided. Additional ADA accessible parking can be found in Lots 8 and 9 and the Commons Garage. Please see our accessibility map for more information on accessible routes to locations across campus.
  • All parking spaces in the lower level of Admin Garage, including the parking lot expansion, are restricted to admin zone E gated card holders and handicap parking only.
  • In the event no spaces are available in the lower garage, overflow parking on the upper level is permitted to all admin zone E gated card holders, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
  • Metered spaces on the upper level of Admin Garage are for visitor parking only.
  • The west end of Administration Drive is open to service vehicles and deliveries only.

Please view our construction map for more details about these changes.

Work on UMBC Blvd. and Hilltop Circle will continue throughout the spring. Construction on UMBC Blvd. has transitioned to the east (inbound) side, and a new traffic pattern has been developed to handle incoming and outgoing traffic. Use caution when entering or exiting campus from UMBC Blvd. and be mindful of construction personnel and pedestrians in the area.

Please expect delays and give yourself plenty of extra travel time to arrive on campus. We encourage the campus community to use alternate routes, such as Hilltop Rd., Walker Ave., or Shelbourne Rd. You can view these routes on our campus map.

As always, we encourage you to visit the Campus Entrance website and join our myUMBC group to receive news and updates and stay apprised of how construction on this project may impact you.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we continue work on this important project. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
