Returning Rutgers University students will find fewer parking spaces on the New Brunswick campus.
Officials on Tuesday began work on dedicated bus and bike lanes along College Avenue that are designed to improve pedestrian safety and increase traffic flow. Fifty parking spaces were eliminated.
To compensate for less parking, 20 metered spaces will be available for all-day parking in lot 26, behind the Rutgers Student Center on College Avenue. The remaining metered parking will be located at Alexander Johnston Hall at the corner of College Avenue and Somerset Street and will be available for public use after 6 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
Fencing will be installed between Scott Hall and Ford Hall on College Avenue with gaps at crosswalks.
