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.

lot-44-closesTransit 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.

    Now if we can just hire a coach after next season and bid farewell to the coach who can’t defeat SEC schools. Check out your coach Bret’s record against these squads. Give him his 5th year then say bye bye.

    That map does not accurately reflect all of the parking available to students. Some of those lots require special permits or tags that are different than what most students get. Without that permit, which is not given to all students, much of the new parking is not available to students. Furthermore, the southmost lot on the map, Lot 56, is technically bigger than shown. The space between the green and orange zones is actually parking and had been available up until this past semester. Now it’s chained off for the drill squad or whatever their little flag-waving group is. So basically you have 1/3 of that entire lot sectioned off and perpetually denied to students for a group that barely ever uses it. Plus, many lots have to be vacated for sporting events, so students that have classes from morning to night have to run back to try and relocate their car – IF they can find a space among ever-diminishing number of lots – so they don’t get a $100 ticket. I like my graduate program at the U. of A., but I am SICK AND TIRED of how the school treats its students and their needs as secondary to their insipid little sports. All of the Razorback teams can choke for all I care (which they manage to do very nicely on their own). The U. of A. isn’t a university with solid sports, it’s a sports complex that considers its students to be little more than a money-making racket to support its joke athletic teams.

    I believe in the last 3 years, his record against SEC schools in fine, including 3-0 vs a very good Ole Miss team, and 2-1 against LSU in that time. He has it going in the right direction for sure!
