CAMPUSTOWN DEVELOPMENT TO TEMPORARILY IMPACT PARKING AT LOT J
CHAMPAIGN, IL— Effective Wednesday, April 16, 2014, at 6:00 p.m., Parking Lot J at 524 E. Green Street/southwest corner of Healey Street and Sixth Street will be closed to the public to begin work on JSM’s 6-story hotel, residential and parking garage complex scheduled to be completed August 2015.
To help accommodate displaced public parking during construction, three parking lots within the Campustown district will be used as temporary public parking until JSM’s 4-story parking garage is completed next year. These temporary lots are enforced Monday through Saturday, 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. by the City of Champaign. Two hour time limit parking lots are located at 503 E. Healey Street and 508 E. Healey Street with lot entrances off of Healey Street. A three hour time limit parking lot is located at the northeast corner of Springfield Avenue and Sixth Street with an entrance off of Sixth Street. Parking is not allowed from 3:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m.
In a collaborative effort between the City of Champaign, JSM and the Champaign Center Partnership, a new public awareness campaign, Campus Is Open, will be launched to spotlight the temporary public parking as well as locations of parking meters throughout Campustown. The campaign will help encourage visitors to familiarize themselves with the temporary parking options available during construction.
