Bicycle parking can be hard to find as more students, faculty, and staff choose to commute to campus by bike. This project assessed the bicycle parking shortage by adding a concentrated bike parking area at the west entrance of the Kim Engineering Building. Students and Facilities staff were surveyed on the best potential bicycle rack locations; DOTS also consulted with the Fire Marshall. The final spots chosen were:
· Kim Engineering west side entrance
· Bldg. #045 left side of entrance
· Chemistry (Bldg. 091) at Stadium Drive entrance
· Lot II1
An additional rack and a bike repair station were also installed in Lot XX5. The Kim Engineering project added 64 bicycle parking spaces to a heavily trafficed area of campus, significantly reducing illegal and unsafe parking.
