Ohio State University Traffic and Parking will be raising the gate arms to all campus and hospital garages (except the Safeauto Hospitals Garage which will remain restricted to patient parking only) by 10pm tonight and we are encouraging all third shift staff on central campus to park in a garage rather than in a surface parking lot (regardless of the type of OSU permit they have).
We are putting the electronic messageboards out east of the stadium and in the west of Cannon Polo lots to let staff know.This will allow us to clear the surface parking lots faster and allow the staff to park under cover. Garage gates will go back down on Friday morning at 7am.
Staff still parked inside garages will be allowed out at no fee. Our staff will be on campus beginning at 9pm to begin clearing surface parking lots and garage roofs and entrance/exit lanes.
