Heller Drive improvement project update

To: UCSC Community

From: Transportation and Parking Services Assistant Director Susan Willats

The Heller Drive improvement project has caused some delay for those traveling on the west side of campus. To alleviate the occasional backup of cars exiting the Core West Parking Structure, the bollards at the Steinhart Way exit have been removed. This temporary exit will remain open until the end of this month, or until the construction project is complete.

This Friday, the final paving work will be done on Heller Drive. This requires each lane to be closed while it's being paved, and will likely cause significant traffic delays. Drivers are urged to use the Main Entrance, and avoid Heller Drive when possible.

Questions about the paving project should be directed to Damon Adlao, Project Manager, at 459-2338. Questions about the Core West Parking Structure should be directed to Andy Klein, Parking Manager, at 459-5821.
