WVU Police are introducing a new exit traffic pattern at the WVU men’s basketball game vs. Loyola on Monday, Dec. 2.
Vehicles leaving the Blue Lot and Premium Blue Lots located in front of the Coliseum will now all exit at the back of the parking bays, just as they entered. The vehicles will travel either towards the Arboretum Lot or the Upper Parking Lot where Charter Buses park. No vehicle traffic will exit the front of the Coliseum.
Red Lot vehicle traffic will also exit out the back of Blue Lot as well and break off either toward Arboretum Lot or the Upper Parking lot where the Charter Buses park.
The Gold Lot, the Blue Lot section located directly beside the Gold Lot and Shell Building Lot will have no changes to their current pattern.
Arboretum Lot traffic can still exit to the top of the lot or at the Upper Parking Lot.
Foot traffic will still continue to exit the front of the Coliseum as before and may be asked to wait on vehicle traffic prior to reaching the Upper Parking Lot.
No vehicle traffic will exit the front of the Coliseum with the exception of buses transporting spectators to the Green Lot.
Limited Coliseum Parking on Monday
Coliseum parking on Monday will be extremely limited. Students who have classes in the Coliseum on Monday will be allowed to park in the Natatorium lot for free until 5 p.m. Students who do not have classes in the Coliseum, but in other areas of the Evansdale campus may park for free in the Coliseum lots near the Arboretum until 5 p.m. Space is limited at both locations.
WVU faculty and staff who work at the Coliseum will be allowed to park for free during the day until 5 p.m.
To offset this parking loss, all are reminded that short-term parking is available at the Alumni Center, Mountaineer Station on Van Voorhis Road, at a variety of short-term lots on the Evansdale campus, and in downtown parking garages and lots operated by the Morgantown Parking Authority. All of these alternatives have easy access to the PRT and Mountain Line bus system, which is free to WVU students, faculty and staff.
