Parking lot closure
Traffic flow into the parking garage near the fitness center on Clay Kaserne has changed. Vehicles must enter and exit through the back of the garage, adjacent to the ring road where indicated. Ladd Avenue is closed to all traffic and on-street parking, except for the marked parking spaces adjacent to Bldg. 1208. This includes the access and exit points to the Ladd Avenue side of the parking garage. Additionally, the parking lot on the Ladd Avenue side of the parking garage is closed. Traffic flow may be congested in this area, and personnel are asked to use alternative routes. Parking is prohibited around Bldg. 1052 unless in a marked parking space.
The changes are in preparation for the DEFENDER-Europe 20 exercise, which is expected to run through July.
