Road Closure, Transit Detour for Upcoming Events

On Tuesday, March 10 AND Wednesday March 11, events will be held on Georgia Ave between Dining Commons and Centennial Place.  This portion of Georgia Ave will be closed to all traffic throughout the event.

Beginning at 4pm and ending by 9pm of the date(s) above, no traffic will be permitted onto Georgia Ave from the Georgia Ave & Chandler Road traffic light.  This includes transit buses, university vehicles, vendors, and contractors. Emergency vehicles will coordinate with Public Safety.

Departments with vendors who normally access Georgia Ave during these times should make proper arrangements.

Transit: Blue Route will detour onto Chandler Road towards Plant Drive and travel on Forest Drive to service the Bookstore Stop. A 5-minute delay in service is expected.

Should you have any questions, please contact our office at 912-478-7275.


Upcoming Downtime For Online Services

During February 13 – 16, IT Services will be upgrading various systems on campus. Between 5pm and 9pm Friday, AIMS Web (Online Parking Services Portal) will not be available. Upgrades are projected to be be complete by 9pm Friday, February 13.

Please contact IT Services with any questions or concerns. Additional services across campus will be impacted throughout the weekend. More information concerning this downtime window can be found at http://its.georgiasouthern.edu/itcommunications/2015/02/11/.


Spaces Reallocated On Sweetheart Circle

During the break, Parking and Transportation has changed the assignment of certain spaces that will directly affect Lot 13 permit holders.

The parallel spaces along Southern Drive, between Sanford Hall and Sweetheart Circle, have been reallocated from Lot 13 commuter spaces to Faculty & Staff spaces. The signage for this area has been changed accordingly. This area will be fully enforced beginning Monday, January 12, 2015.

In planning for this reallocation, our department has ensured that the current permit capacity would not be affected by the decrease in spaces. When classes resume, any shortage in commuter spaces will be a result of unauthorized vehicles parked in the area, not from the reallocation.

As always, please watch for signs while entering and parking in any campus lot to ensure proper placement of your vehicle.
