So they put that traffic light there to help students who were jaywalking. The jaywalkers/smartphone zombies are still a problem so now they have to shut down part of the street. What's next, shutting down all traffic around Northgate and busing people in?

I like shutting down the road, that intersection has become way too dangerous. I think this new setup for the Uber pickup area sucks though.

Its OK as long as its not the ONLY Uber area. They have to keep the old one on campus going.

You mean Lot 31 or whatever on game days? That should still be there. I just mean in general, not particularly game days. Moving Ubers from the "taxi lane" to the parking lot will suck.

It's working well and should be safer. Still slow though so remains to be seen how a game weekend will function.

What's not working and is absolute silly hogwash is the closing of the drive in front of the parking lot. The city already repurposed a ton of parking inventory for uber and cab, which is probably not good either, but to close the drive behind Northgate in front of parking lot is lunacy. They could have done one or the other, but to do both is draconian.

Closing the road is good, the Uber pickup area in the parking lot is a hot mess.

Agree wholly with red. For the city to take away parking whilst closing the drive thru road behind ngate is senseless
