Lanes along portion of University Boulevard to temporarily close

Two lanes of University Boulevard will close from March 13th  through August 4th along an approximate one-half mile stretch from the University Boulevard and Bryant Drive intersection west to the area near the University Boulevard and Second Avenue intersection (near Arby’s).

The road will not close as two lanes will remain open, but traffic flow will be impacted. Initially, the westbound lanes will close for construction, but traffic will be two-way on the eastbound lanes from March 13 to May 27.  Once the westbound construction is complete, two-way traffic will move to the westbound lanes, and eastbound lanes will be closed for construction.

UA will replace the road’s concrete slabs with asphalt and add medians, landscaping, a transit lane, a bike lane and make lighting improvements. This project is Phase II of a broader initiative to re-pave University Boulevard from McFarland to downtown.

To purchase a One Month permit, bring the vehicle license plate information and photo identification (Action Card, driver’s license, etc.) to the Parking Services Office located inside the Transit Hub at 451 Campus Drive East.  Our office hours are 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.




Ride Amigos

Ride Amigos is a ride share program that allows students of the University of Alabama to connect and utilize carpool opportunities among their fellow classmates.  Once you place your origin and destination in the system you can find other people to carpool with, search for driving, biking or walking distance to your destination or see if you can catch a bus on your route.  If you review the Ride Amigos tab on our webpage you can also review training videos that help you get started.
