All Day Parking
Volunteers who will be at the lab all day and not leaving during the day are asked to park in the "all day" parking lot. This is the new paved lot on Hadron Drive and BCS Road (east of the Test Lab, Bldg. 58 and north of RadCon). If you park there, you may not move your car until the event is over.
You can park in marked parking spots on the accelerator site before 8:30 a.m. However, you will not be able to move your car until the last shuttle bus departs the campus at 3:30 p.m.
If you are working a half-day shift or need access to your car, park in the ARC parking lots and use a half-day parking pass.
