N22 lot to reopen on October 7

Friday, September 13, 2019

The N22 lot, which has been closed since July 8 for construction work, will reopen on Monday, October 7. The lot is being upgraded to comply with the most recent accessibility standards. Spaces in the new N22 lot will be 8 feet wide in aisle width, where only 5 feet is required by ADA standards. This project will also use permeable concrete which is more environmentally friendly than conventional concrete and a first for a UW parking lot.

To help facilitate this construction, traffic will be redirected through the summer as needed.

How may this affect my commute?


If you currently park in N22, you should have been contacted by Transportation Services about the reassignment of your permit during the lot closure. If you have not been contacted yet or have further questions regarding parking on campus, please contact Transportation Services at (206) 221-3701 or at

If you are a visitor and need accessible parking, stop by any gatehouse to obtain an accessible parking permit for the day and our gatehouse staff will direct you to an appropriate lot or garage.


Plan accordingly and factor in increased congestion time on Stevens Way during the construction.


The N22 closure will affect pedestrian routes on both sides of Stevens Way at varying times.
