ICYMI: Parking closure and Harkin development

The following message was sent from Scott Law, director of Public Safety & Operational Services, to campus on Monday, Sept. 23.

Starting at 2 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 24, a portion of the Aliber parking lot (Lot #24) will be blocked off in order to prepare for the relocation of three houses. The houses, which sit along Brattleboro Avenue, will be moved to the Sherman Hill neighborhood on Oct. 3.

Starting this week, the homes will be moved off their foundations and placed on trailers in the Aliber parking lot. Parking will be blocked off in the Aliber lot until late November (see image). Alternative parking can be found in the Ross Hall and Tennis parking lots.

Once the houses are relocated, construction for the new Harkin Institute building will start immediately. The first phase of the Harkin project includes adding additional parking, which is scheduled to be completed toward the end of November.

We appreciate your patience with these parking changes. It’s an exciting time to be at Drake as we witness transformations to our campus landscape that will uplift our University and community.
