Questions and Comments about the Permit Process or the Interim Main Quadrangles Pedestrian Zone Policy: Please send an email to email@example.com.
The Main Quadrangle Pedestrian Zone is identified as the portion of the campus bounded to the north by 57th Street, to the west by Ellis Avenue, to the south by 59th Street, and to the east by University Avenue. Vehicular access is prohibited between the hours of 7:30AM and 12:00AM (Midnight), seven days a week. University Vehicles are restricted between 7:00AM and 12:00AM seven days a week. No vehicles, moving or parked, will be allowed within the Main Quadrangle Pedestrian Zone unless an exception permit is displayed. Effective immediately quad permits will be mainly issued for construction or facility related repair work. Catering vendors are encouraged to wheel supplies to the destination on the Quad from the University Ave. access point. All other Quad access requests submitted that do not specifically pertain to construction or repair work will be carefully reviewed and considered on a case by case basis.
The Interim Main Quadrangle Policy requires enforcement to prohibit vehicular traffic from entering the pedestrian zone. Enforcement involves active management of the 58th Street & University Avenue entrance and signage indicating the Main Quadrangle is a pedestrian zone. Active management begins with monitoring by the UCPD. A moveable barrier (e.g., retractable bollards) is proposed as the permanent solution which reduces the need for ongoing Police monitoring.
The following services will not require an exception permit to access the Main Quadrangle:
