Campus Gateway

Thursday, January 10, 2013
Large iron gates, part of the final pieces of DePauw University's new campus entrance off Bloomington Street (U.S. 231) at Anderson Street, are hoisted into place Wednesday afternoon by a crane from Dotlich Crane Services, Speedway.Workmen from Capitol City Ironworks, Indianapolis, secured the decorative Hoover Gates, which are designed never to close. While the street was closed during the gate installation Wednesday, Anderson is now open as a two-way street from Bloomington to Locust streets. No parking is allowed on either side of the restructured roadway that funnels traffic into campus toward historic East College.

  • Of course there's no parking allowed on the new Anderson Street, it's too narrow. Very poor design.

  • Sad to say but I think the new gates detract from the new entrance and represent a visual closing of the street. Although the gates are designed not to close, gates by their very nature are restrictive. DePauw, you went overboard on this design.

    And while I have your attention, what bad timing for closing the parking lot north of the Lilly Center just when many athletic teams are in full swing - swimming, basketball, etc. Parking is limited. Could this have been put off for another six weeks and then put in the new A/C for the Julian Center?

    As I have stated numerous times to the DePauw Administration, there is not enough parking for major events.
