SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - Seton Hall University faculty are being allowed to park on a gravel lot constructed on the lawn of the university's student center, public safety employees said.

The lot opened on Wednesday. The university has installed a gate that would give vehicles access to the lot from South Orange Avenue.

The action comes after South Orange officials protested when the university started directing overflow traffic onto the streets of the Tuxedo Park neighborhood. Village officials met several times with Seton Hall representatives to discuss ways handle the parking problem.
