Parking Lot Near Razorback Stadium Will Close For Expansion Project
FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — The University of Arkansas Transit and Parking Department will be closing Lot 44, the parking lot just north of Razorback Stadium, Nov. 19 at 7 a.m. to begin the stadium expansion project.
The lot will be used to allow the contractor to move in and set up fences and equipment.
Transit and Parking expects to lose 384 spaces during the initial phase of construction and 48 of the space will reopen at the end of March 2017.
What remains of the student section in Lot 44 will be re-designated as faculty/staff parking.
In preparation for the loss of parking space, the university developed additional parking for students along Razorback Road that include 835 new parking spaces.
All vehicles left in the fenced-in portion of Lot 44 after 7 a.m. Nov. 21 will be cited and towed at the owner’s expense.
Students who parked in Lot 44 are encouraged to park in the student parking Lots 74, 74A, 74B, 74C and 74D, on the west side of Razorback Road, west of the outdoor track.
The stadium expansion project is expected to be completed by Aug. 1, 2018.
