Champions Cup Soccer Game Parking Impacts

This Saturday, Aug. 2nd, the Guinness International Champions Cup soccer game at Michigan Stadium will have parking impacts nearly identical to those for home football games.

Parking & Transportation Services and the Athletic Department ask for your assistance as we work to provide parking for game attendees.

We request that ALL vehicles (personal and University) be parked at off-site locations away from the Michigan Stadium area Friday, Aug. 1st, by 11:00 p.m. Any vehicles left in the lots after 11:00 p.m. will be subject to towing.

Listed below are the lots to be vacated by all vehicles:

  • SC2: Blue lot between Keech St. and Hoover St.
  • SC3: Service Center at Admin. Services Bldg.
  • SC4: Yellow lot on Kipke Dr.
  • SC5: Yellow lot on Kipke Dr.
  • SC6: Orange lot west of Kipke Dr.
  • SC7: Orange lot east of Kipke Dr.
  • SC9: Yellow (Coliseum) lot on Hill St. at Division St.
  • SC11: U-M Business Vehicle lot on Hoover St. at the Physical Properties Bldg. *
  • SC12: Blue lot on Greene St.
  • SC13: Blue lot on Greene St.
  • SC14: Blue lot on Hoover St. at Greene St.
  • SC32: Visitor lot on Greene St.
  • SC35: Yellow lot between Keech St. and Hoover St.
  • SC36: Orange lot on Keech St. at Main St. **
  • SC37: Blue lot on Hoover St. at Revelli Hall
  • SC38: Yellow lot on Division St. and Hill St.
  • SC41: Orange lot on Hoover St.

* In SC11, it is especially important to remove U-M vehicles, because this is where staff park who must work on Saturdays. The boiler operators, computer support staff, on-call emergency maintenance staff and others will appreciate your compliance with this request, so they have a place to park when arriving for work.

** The eastern half (cemented area) of SC36 will be closed to parkers Thursday, July 31st, at 5:00 p.m., through Sunday, Aug. 3rd.

See map locations of these lots.

On-call staff and staff with regular work schedules on Saturday will be accommodated on the Athletic/South Campus if possible. With as much advance notice as possible, please email Parking & Transportation Services (umpark@umich.edu) with the names of those working and the dates and times. You will get confirmation of their parking arrangements by return email. If we can be of assistance to help identify alternative parking locations for U-M vehicles, please feel free to contact Parking & Transportation Services at 647-3615.

Employees working on U-M's Athletic/South Campus on Saturday, before, during and after the soccer game, need to be aware that Keech St., at the north end of Michigan Stadium, will be closed to all traffic, except emergency vehicles, at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday until approximately one hour after the game ends. In addition, Greene St. south of Hoover St. will be one-way southbound until the game ends.

Wall Street East Parking Structure Now Open

The new Wall Street East parking structure is now open. The deck provides 725 parking spaces on six levels for Blue and Gold permit holders. It is enforced 24-hours on weekdays from 6AM Monday through 1AM Saturday morning. A covered sidewalk is located along Maiden Lane and a covered bus waiting area is located on the west end of the site. Nielsen Court was extended between Maiden Lane and Wall Street to provide improved vehicular circulation.

Bus service to the medical campus is provided via two new services:

The Wall Street Express bus provides 15-minute service from the parking structure (both east and west ends) to the Cancer Center, University Hospital/Taubman Center, Children's and Women's hospitals and Cardiovascular Center from 5:15AM - 6:00AM and 7:00PM - 1:07AM, weekdays. See Route Map and Schedule for more details.

The Wall Street-NIB bus provides increased service frequency to medical campus during peak hours and also serves the North Ingalls buildings. It runs every 11 minutes during peak times (6AM - 10AM and 3PM - 7PM). During non-peak hours (10AM - 3PM) it runs every 22 minutes. See Route Map and Schedule for more details.

The deck utilizes new energy efficient lighting, Limelight ™, that will turn off selected lamps in each fixture or entire fixtures based on natural light levels. In addition, the fixtures have motion detection sensors that allow lights to be turned off during idle periods and will reactivate lights as vehicles or people approach.

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations are located at the top of the ramp from level 1 to level 2. Activation is in progress; availability is anticipated by Monday July 14th. Note that these spaces are intended for EVs only and are time limited to 4 hours per park.

A rain garden to capture storm water is located on the east end of the deck, with installation still in progress.

The location of the deck in the heart of Ann Arbor's 'Lower Town' district provided a unique opportunity to showcase the rich history of this area. In collaboration with local historians, a series of art panels have been developed that depict the evolution of the area, and are being installed around the structure.
