“Anyone currently parked inside Eisenhower Deck must meet at the lawn just south of Millennium Science Complex beginning at 2:30 p.m. today (Wednesday, Aug. 16),” the message read.
Some vehicles may be unable to be removed due to safety concerns, and those vehicles will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
Eisenhower Parking Deck permit holders can park in any other on-campus parking deck or the commuter lots for the remainder of the day, according to the release.
