Green Street is under construction between First St. and Third St. and Wright St. and Goodwin Ave. It is advisable to use Springfield Ave. or University Ave. to bypass Green St. construction. However, the circle drive in front of the Union is only accessible by traveling eastbound down Green St., just past the intersection of Green and Wright.

There is limited parking (~10 spots total) directly in front of the Union (North side) in the circle drive. The following is a map of all places you can park in the vicinity of the Illini Union:
