Be careful! The recent blast of winter weather has led to some slippery roads, parking lots, and sidewalks throughout the region. With more freezing temperatures in the immediate forecast, and many weeks of winter ahead, pedestrian and vehicle safety are critical. The presence of snow banks requires motor vehicle operators to drive with extreme caution throughout the campus at all times, heeding all traffic signs, pedestrian crossings, speed bumps, etc., as well as the 10-MPH speed limit.
Overnight and winter parking: With snow on the way, Cummings Center businesses are reminded that, through March 31, 2014, unattended parking (i.e., parking where the driver is not readily available to move the vehicle) is strictly prohibited in Cummings Center parking lots between 7 PM and 7 AM. Especially when snow is in the forecast or snow removal operations are necessary, please use one of the four campus garages for evening parking, as any vehicle left in a parking lot after 7 PM without prior approval will be subject to towing at the vehicle owner's expense. Your cooperation will enable Cummings Center's snow team to provide the best possible access for employees and visitors during the winter months.
