Cambridge, Mass. (May 2) -- With the current construction ongoing on Vassar Street that includes the demolition of the West Garage, there are a number of nearby parking options that are available for this week's NEWMAC Softball and Tennis Championships at MIT, along with the New England D3 Outdoor Track and Field Championship.
The primary parking option will be the Albany Street Parking Garage, which is located a short walking distance from the Zesiger Sports and Fitness Center, the Johnson Athletic Center and Steinbrenner Stadium. Parking is available after 2:30 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends, for a cost of $9.00. There is also limited metered street parking available along Vassar Street, which is located adjacent to the outdoor athletic facilities.
If the Albany Street Parking Garage becomes filled, patrons will be directed to the West Gate Parking Lot, which is located on Vassar Street beyond the MIT athletic fields. This will be manned by a staff member from the MIT parking office and will be a $9.00 parking fee.
If the West Gate Parking Lot becomes filled, patrons will be directed to the West Lot on Vassar Street, which is located across from E Field on Vassar. That will also be manned by a staff member from the MIT parking office and will be a $9.00 parking fee.
