Construction Information – Warren Towers Garage

in Transportation News
May 21st, 2014

As a part of an ongoing project to extend the viability of the Warren Towers dormitory construction will again be taking place for the duration of the summer in the garage. Construction will begin in earnest today, May 21, and extend through the end of August. To accommodate this project a large number of spaces will be taken offline and significant changes will occur inside the garage.

First, the entrance to the garage will still be on Hinsdale Mall but the entrance will be the second garage door on your right when you turn on to Hinsdale Street. The normal entrance to the garage was taken offline to accommodate  construction.

Second, traffic patterns in the garage will be significantly changed due to the scope of the work being conducted inside the garage. Work will be conducted around most of the ramps inside the garage therefore Parking & Transportation Services will increase staffing in the garage by 600%, two additional staff members on each level of the garage, to  make certain the safety of permit holders is upheld.

Lastly, all vehicles must exit on the Cummington Mall side of the garage. This exit is located next to FedEx Kinkos and the entrance to the Warren Towers bike room.  The University is working with the Boston Transportation Department to modify the light cycle times at the corner of Cummington Mall and Commonwealth Avenue to better facilitate the flow of traffic out of the garage.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding parking due to this project please do not hesitate to contact the Parking & Transportation Services office. The office may be reached at (617) 353-2160 on weekdays between 9AM and 5PM.
