Parking and Traffic Policies Committee

The major issues the committee dealt with this year included:
1. Traffic congestion and hazards to pedestrians at the intersection of 24th and Speedway. After numerous emails, meetings, discussions, and a study by Walker Parking Consultants, UT Parking is working on a solution to this problem that will restrict traffic on 24th and re-route people who park in this area. These actions will greatly reduce traffic in that intersection.

2. A bicycle resolution was introduced by Gordon Novak (computer sciences) to request that UT adopt bicycle-friendly policies. Versions of this resolution were passed unanimously by the UT Bicycle Committee, Parking and Traffic Policies Committee, Faculty Council (D 6889), Staff Council, and Student Government.
