We wanted to share this very important information about parking on Football game days:


FROM:          Eric Kunz
                        Associate Vice President for Facilities and Materiel Management

                        OSU Medical Center


As we prepare for another exciting OSU football season, I want to remind faculty, staff and football_ect01students of traffic and parking changes that will occur around the Medical Center on game days. These changes are designed to make sure that access to the Medical Center and parking remains available for each patient, visitor and staff member working on game days.




* The SAFEAUTO Hospitals Garage, on Westpark Street, will be reserved ONLY for patients, visitors and staff who are working on game days—no football parking.

* Staff members working on game days will need to show traffic officers their parking permit before entering the SAFEAUTO Hospitals Garage.

* Police and Security will be monitoring access to the SAFEAUTO Hospitals Garage to ensure that ONLY patients, visitors and staff who are scheduled to work on game days park in this garage.

*315 construction between I-670 and North Broadway will significantly impact traffic during the 2009 football season. Staff are encouraged to anticipate delays and changes in traffic patterns on campus and follow the directions of traffic officers.

* Traffic will be heavy before and after the game, more so than in past years. It is recommended that staff allow extra time in their commute if they are scheduled to work on game days.

* The suggested route to the Medical Center campus on game day is to approach campus from the South, using either Neil, 12th, 3rd or King Avenues.

Construction to Significantly Impact Campus Traffic and Parking beginning June 15

Directions to all other Medical Center buildings can be found here

The occurrence of road closures/detours and the loss of surface parking spaces during summer construction will impact daily travel and may create a ripple effect in other areas of campus as customers use alternate roadways or relocate to new parking areas.

During this time, motorists should anticipate traffic delays and are encouraged to plan accordingly to reduce frustration.

While a complete list of known projects and map of each location can be found at http://tp.osu.edu/alerts/summerconstruction.shtml, we’d like to call your attention to a few projects that may result in significant traffic delays:
State Route 315 construction, beginning Monday (6/15), is expected to generate heavy traffic along Kenny Road, Olentangy River Road, High Street, Lane Avenue and possibly Woody Hayes Drive. More information on this project can be found at http://www.buckeyetraffic.org/315. The Ohio Department of Transportation also will be staffing a telephone line throughout the construction: (740) 833-8268.
A campus Utilities Expansion Project will close Tuttle Park Place at Woody Hayes Drive on Monday (6/15). This phase is a continuation of the work that has been ongoing along Woodruff for the past several months.
Cannon Drive between Woody Hayes and Herrick Drive will be closed to all traffic for approximately 24-36 hours beginning at 8 p.m. Sunday (6/14). Parking access to the lot between the Lincoln and Morrill Towers and the Drake will not be available during this time. Cannon should reopen to through traffic by 6 a.m. Tuesday (6/16). Beginning Tuesday, traffic will be maintained but lanes will be restricted through Wednesday (6/17) at 6 p.m.
Fyffe Road between Lane Avenue and Woody Hayes Drive will be impacted for approximately one week for a resurfacing project, beginning Monday (6/15). Traffic will be maintained, but lanes will be restricted.
Fyffe Court, south of Woody Hayes will be closed to traffic beginning at 6 p.m. Monday (6/15). This closure will last for approximately three days.
Cannon Drive and 12th Avenue – Utility projects in the Medical Center area of campus will result in lane restrictions along Cannon and 12th Avenue throughout the summer.
College Road will be impacted by a utility and repaving project this summer, resulting in lane restrictions.
NOTE: All roadway construction projects are “weather permitting.”

For questions or concerns regarding these projects, please e-mail mailto:constructionquestion@osu.edu.
