It’s officially called the Summer Literacy Clinic, but there’s much more to it than one-on-one reading and tutoring. True, when you enter the library of Roberts PreK-8 School in the Syracuse City School District (SCSD), you see third- and fourth-grade…
Tonight’s Concert to Impact Traffic Patterns and Parking Availability
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:
This evening, the JMA Wireless Dome will host the Red Hot Chili Peppers, with the concert scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. A large crowd is expected, and guests have been advised to arrive and park early to avoid delays.
In an effort to ease congestion, we ask that anyone who parks a vehicle on campus consider departing from their usual on-campus parking lots no later than 3 p.m. to avoid getting tied up in traffic.
If you are able to depart early and finish your work day at home, we’d appreciate you doing so. If you have any questions about your specific situation, please contact your supervisor at your earliest convenience.
If you are a member of our campus community planning to attend the concert, your existing parking pass will be honored in University Avenue Garage, Comstock Avenue Garage, University Avenue North and South lots, and the Irving Avenue Hill lot, as space allows.
Comstock Avenue to Close Temporarily This Evening
At the conclusion of the concert, those on and around campus should be aware of a temporary change to traffic patterns on Comstock Avenue. As the concert ends, the University’s Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) team and the Syracuse Police Department will close Comstock Avenue to all traffic except concert parking shuttles, which will travel between the College Place bus stop, the Colvin Street and Comstock Avenue lots, and the Skytop lot.
The concert is anticipated to end between 10:15 and 10:30 p.m., and at that time, PTS will direct all traffic away from Comstock Avenue between Waverly Avenue and East Colvin Street. This will allow for the efficient exit and transportation of the crowd from the shuttle stop at College Place to parking lots on South Campus.
The road will reopen as soon as the concert shuttles are cleared. Regular shuttles to South Campus and other campus shuttles will continue to run during and after the event, though arrivals and departures may be delayed due to the large amount of vehicular traffic in the University area.
Thank you for your flexibility, patience and understanding. More information about parking for upcoming events is available via Syracuse University News or the Parking and Transportation Services website.
