- Fourth Street parking
The great news is the construction crew advised that we could open up parking on Fourth Street. The sad news is we have to close it down again.

We are truly sorry for any inconveniences and hope to open more parking spots as soon as we can. According to KU the parking on Fourth Street will be blocked out for the rest of the semester. Contact DPS with any questions.
