North Campus traffic, parking advisory for Friday, Nov. 15

Status Update: November 14, 2019 at 5:35 PM

Due to a relocation of a major national athletic event to UB’s North Campus, some parking lots and entrances to the North Campus will be temporarily impacted from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15.

UB is serving as host institution for the 2019 NCAA Northeast Cross Country Regionals. The original site for the event was the Audubon Golf Course in Amherst. However, due to inclement winter weather on Monday and into Tuesday, course conditions were impacted, creating hazardous conditions for the participants.

The course will start and finish near UB Stadium and will travel along sections of the following roadways: Audubon Parkway, White, Hadley, Rensch, Frontier, and Augspurger roads, and St. Rita’s Lane, as well as the Hamilton Road and Webster Road entrances.

Parking lots adjacent to these roads will be intermittently impacted during the race. Roadways will progressively open as runners get farther along the route.

The university’s goal is to maintain normal operations as much as possible. Please plan extra time during your travel around campus during this time.

Additional information:

  • UB personnel will be in place to help manage traffic patterns and parking.
  • Shuttle service will run as scheduled. However, the North Campus Shuttle will not be able to service South Lake Village during the duration of the event. UB community members are advised to use the walkway behind the Center for the Arts to access and connect to transportation at Lee Loop or the Student Union.
  • There are approximately 400 participants in the event.
  • The following parking lots will be unavailable from 11 p.m. Thursday until 2 p.m. Friday: Arena Lot, Alumni A, LaSalle, Alumni C.
  • The following lots along the route are open. However, entrances and exits to and from these lots will be affected by the race from 9 a.m to 2 p.m. on Friday: Jarvis, Governors A-E, Fronczak A&B, Cooke A&B, Hadley Village, Ketter, Furnas, Bookstore, South Lake Village. UB personnel will be managing traffic to and from these lots.
  • Transit delays at Ellicott and Governors will not be longer than 15-20 minutes, likely between 11 and 11:30 a.m. and noon and 12:30 p.m.
  • Pedestrian flow between Ellicott and Lee Loop will also be subjected to delays, in order to allow runners to pass. Please plan ahead to reach your destination outside of these time periods.
