University Parking Services is preparing for ice accumulation on the KTXT TV tower. There is a possibility of some ice accumulations today and tomorrow.

The greatest concern comes as the weather warms above freezing and the ice begins to thaw and fall from the tower. At this point, it looks like that may not happen until Wednesday. The parking areas closest to the TV tower will likely close after classes today and will reopen when the weather warms and the tower has thawed.

Based on recent utilization counts, there should be sufficient parking in the remaining portions of the commuter west parking areas. Specifically, there has been significant parking available in the C17 lot (east of Texas Tech Federal Credit Union) and C10 lot (north of the University Greenhouse at Main & Hartford). Overflow for commuter west permit holders, if needed, will be in the S1 satellite lot at 10th Street & Texas Tech Parkway. See the Campus Parking Map for more details.
