Saturday's Heart Walk: Traffic and Parking Impact

Posted September 10, 2015

The American Heart Association's Heart Walk will be held on our UCF campus for the third consecutive year on Saturday, Sept. 12.

The Heart Walk route will cover the following roads, which will be closed from approximately 7 to 10 a.m.: the two inside lanes of the Gemini Boulevard loop, the two inside lanes of Greek Park Drive and all of East Plaza Drive and West Plaza Drive.

The two outside lanes of the Gemini Boulevard loop and Greek Park Drive will remain open to traffic, with all traffic moving one way in a counterclockwise direction.

From approximately 7 to 10 a.m., vehicles will not be able to enter or leave all parking areas inside of the Gemini Boulevard loop and along East Plaza Drive and West Plaza Drive. This includes most parking garages (only the Libra Garage will remain accessible), all C and D lots, most H lots and several B lots.

If you must leave campus between 7 and 10 a.m., please park your vehicle ahead of time in the Libra Garage or in one of these lots: B5-B8, located along Gemini Boulevard South near Central Florida Boulevard; B12 and B15, located along Libra Drive; or H10, located adjacent to Lake Claire on Gemini Boulevard North.

If you will be arriving on campus between 7 and 10 a.m., please plan on parking in the Libra Garage or in one of the lots listed above.

The campus entrances at McCulloch Road and North Orion Boulevard and at Gemini Boulevard North and Alafaya Trail will both be closed from 7 to 10 a.m. All other campus entrances will remain open throughout the day.

Students and staff and faculty members who are participating in the Heart Walk are encouraged to arrive before 7 a.m. and should park in garages C, D or H.

We will reopen portions of the Heart Walk route as it becomes safe to do so. We expect campus traffic and parking to return to normal no later than 10 a.m.
