Marshall’s 6th Avenue parking facility fully operational beginning Oct. 17

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall University’s new Sixth Avenue parking facility will become fully operational at 7 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, James E. Terry, director of public safety, said today. 

The 411-space garage has been open since the start of the fall semester, but not fully operational because of what Terry called “unexpected technical issues” that have since been resolved.

Hours of operation will be from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday, and entry will be from the 6th Avenue entrance. The entrance at the 5-1/2 alley will be closed. Because overnight parking is prohibited, all vehicles must be removed by 11 p.m. The facility is closed and secured from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. Weekend hours will be based on need and special events.

The fee for parking in the facility is 50 cents an hour, cash only, and will be collected when the driver leaves the facility.  The lost ticket fee is $5.
