Handicap parking in the East Deck and on the service road to the side of DPAC has been greatly reduced due to the construction of the new Aloft Hotel. In addition, the pedestrian route from the East deck to DPAC is now significantly longer. DPAC strongly recommends parking in the North Deck and using our Courtesy Shuttle if you or your guests are uncomfortable walking distances greater than 2/10 of a mile (about 2 to 3 city blocks).
