Except for planned special circumstances approved by Facilities Management, no gas-powered
vehicles are to drive on pedestrian walkways during regular semesters between the
hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. There is no time restriction for electric and utility
vehicles. Motoring on sidewalks should, whenever possible, be done only when pedestrian
traffic is at a minimum, i.e. during class hours (typically on the hour to ten minutes
before the hour). Under no circumstances should any motorized vehicle be driven on
Projects that require moving and removing large quantities of materials, supplies
and equipment should be scheduled for non-peak school periods, i.e. before or after
the hours stipulated above, or on weekends, summers, mini-semesters and spring breaks.
It is imperative that the planning for such projects consider appropriate scheduling
by all involved parties, including customers, project managers, vendors, contractors
and movers. Emergency situations are exempt from this scheduling.

Hall, Psychology Building, Linthicum Hall and Lecture Hall must be completed by 7:30

service areas only—including docks and service entrances—with the exception of emergency
These restrictions must be shared with contractors and vendors prior to scheduling
work and deliveries. In addition, appropriate parties (TUPD, Facilities Management
Work Control and Parking Services) must be given prior notice when circumstances require
motor vehicles on walkways during restricted times.
