New bike parking areas serve Hutchison corridor

New Bike Parking on Hutchison Corridor

With the closure of the bike parking areas near Rock Hall and Walker Hall, Campus Planning and Landscape Architecture worked to identify solutions to the short-term loss of bike parking that would not require costly temporary improvements. Two areas were identified as appropriate for permanent long-term bike parking that would serve future and current needs — the west side of Rock Hall and the north side of Everson Hall.  In both areas lawn panels that required considerable maintenance and water were converted to bike parking and low-water landscapes. The projects included a total of 415 new bike parking spaces, a stormwater basin and a subsurface infiltration system.
