Occasional Parker Program Update
The purchase of day passes at the entrance to the President Street garage is causing entry delays for you and for the other users of the parking garage and is creating traffic backups on President Street during peak morning arrival times. Day-pass services require an entry transaction and cannot be handled elsewhere. You can help us speed up your and everyone’s entry if you will do the following:
A purchase with cash at the garage entrance will shave off three-fourths of the time it takes for a credit card transaction. Transaction time at the garage entrance with a pre-purchased pass is reduced to a few seconds--just long enough to date stamp the day pass.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Congestion in the area of Courtenay Dr. Garage, Alpha and Bravo Sts.
The VA will be pouring again for the elevated slab for the parking garage starting at about 0600, Tuesday 22 MAR 2016 and will complete at approximately 2:00PM. There is no plan for any road closures but there will be about 35 trucks and a pumper involved in each pour.
Flagmen will be present on Bravo and Alpha Street.
All work will take place within the VA footprint at the new garage site on Alpha Street.
Thank you for your assistance and coordination.
Hagood Parking Update
Dear Hagood Parkers:
The city, which owns the main MUSC park-and-ride lot on Fishburne Street and from whom MUSC rents the property, has authorized patrons of the Charleston River Dogs to park in the Hagood lot during evening-played home games during baseball season. On these days MUSC is required by city contract to have no more than 250 vehicles remaining in the lot by 6:00 p.m. We know that helping us may add a complication to your already complicated day, but please help if you possibly can. Here’s how:
There are eight days in April when the River Dogs will be playing evening home games: April 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 21 and 22. When it is game day, we will place game-day signs at the entrances to the main Hagood lot. If you will not be leaving the lot before 6:00 p.m. on any of these game days, please first check the availability of parking in the adjacent 175-space Hagood Line Street lot instead of the main Hagood lot or the availability in the 65-space MUSC section of the College of Charleston lot on Lockwood Drive and park in one of these two locations as long as space is available.
Follow the link for the map of the main Hagood lot (large tan area at the top), the Line St. lot (L-shaped lot above Gadsden Creek) and the CoC lot (green Employment Security Commission building at the bottom of the map): https://email@example.com,-79.9574544,247m/data=!3m1!1e3
This is a seasonal requirement that many of you are familiar with from recent years. Thank you for your understanding and support.
We hope you are enjoying the repaired and expanded main Hagood lot. The Hagood Line Street lot mentioned above is scheduled to be filled and re-graded to improve the driving surface. The work will be done on weekends only and will start (weather permitting) on the evening of April 8.
Please look for and read all Hagood Parking System e-mail updates. They will provide information about River Dogs game days in coming months and other parking information that may be helpful to you. Thank you.
If you have any questions or if we can be of service in any way, please contact Melinda Anderson, CAPP, Director, or Debby Humbert, Manager, Employee and Student Parking Services.
