Section of Hagar Road closed

To: UCSC Community

From: Transportation and Parking Services

A section of Hagar Road between Steinhart Way and just above the East Remote Parking Lot will remain closed until further notice. The heavy rain appears to have caused damage to the road.

In the days ahead, we hope to better understand what will be needed to repair and reopen the road. We will share more information as soon as we have an anticipated reopening date.

Campus Transit services / METRO

Campus Transit will operate modified Loops and Upper Campus routes, and will continue to serve the Village stops in both directions as well as the interior of East Remote. East Field House and Quarry stops will not be served during this closure, nor will East Remote stops on Hagar.

In addition to continuing to serve all other regular stops, Campus Transit modified routing will include detours into Cowell Circle, in both directions for picking up and dropping off passengers.

METRO will bypass Hagar completely during the closure, instead using Coolidge in both directions. This will result in the suspension of METRO service at Quarry, East Field House, East Remote and Village. METRO will pick up and drop off eastbound passengers at McLaughlin and Hagar, provided it is safe to do so.

An interactive Google Map has been developed to show the extent of the road closure and alternative transit routes. Please refer to the campus map for other stops around campus.

The Disability Van Service and Safe Ride will continue to serve all areas of campus to the extent feasible.

All transit passengers should expect delays during this closure.


The East Remote Parking Lot will remain open and accessible from the south only. The following Parking Lots will not be accessible until further notice:

  • Lot 103A (East Field House)
  • Lot 103B (Athletics and Recreation)
  • Lot 163 (Cowell Provost)

Additional impacts

The closure of Hagar Road may increase traffic and congestion on other campus roads, particularly Coolidge Drive and Heller Drive. Members of the campus community should anticipate potential delays, and we encourage everyone to be patient and understanding.
