The employee half of Lot #16, located on the west side of University Arena will be closed, along with half of Lot #13, which is across Western Avenue from the SRC.

Employees displaced by the closures are urged to park in Parking Ramp #1 or in the Ebert Field area. Unauthorized cars in any of the closed areas will be subject to towing.
