Update 2 p.m. Dec. 10

On Saturday, Dec. 17, immediately following the start of winter break, the MAX construction project will have new impacts on parking on the east side of campus. About 175 meter and Z spaces in the west portion of lot #440 by the Christiansen Field will be removed to make way for a new curb and guideway for the MAX rapid transit system.

Students who usually park in those areas can park in lot #575, at the southeast corner of Pitkin Street and University Drive near the University Square building.

Posted 8:30 a.m. Nov. 21

Fifty-four Z student commuter parallel spaces on Mason on the east side of the railroad tracks between Old Main and University Drives will be lost permanently starting Monday, Dec. 3 to make room for the new MAX Bus Rapid Transit System. Access to parking lots along Mason in this area will be maintained as much as possible.

Starting Dec. 17, 175 meter and Z spaces in the west portion of lot #440 by the Christiansen Field will be removed to make way for a new curb and guideway for the MAX rapid transit system.   

Students who usually park in those areas can park in lot #575, at the southeast corner of Pitkin Street and University Drive near the University Square building.

Lake Street will be closed at the railroad tracks,  south of Lot #575, from Nov. 26-30, for utility improvement work as part of the MAX project.

Mason Corridor project

The Mason Corridor project consists of the Mason Trail, economic redevelopment in the heart of Fort Collins and MAX bus rapid transit service. MAX will link major destinations and activity centers along the Mason Corridor including downtown, Colorado State University, Foothills Mall, and South College retail areas. MAX will operate nearly twice as fast as auto travel along College Avenue, and provide high frequency service every 10 minutes. Future regional transit connections will link to MAX at the new South Transit Center.
