2016 Campus Street Project Information

Two major campus road improvement projects will be under construction during the summer of 2016. The purpose of these projects is to enhance safety and mobility on campus as well as upgrade drainage and street surface conditions. These projects will necessitate variable street closures and traffic detours for motorized vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians. Your patience is appreciated while these important improvements are made. Please use caution when traveling through construction areas. Obey all traffic laws, pay careful attention to traffic control signs and reduce speed.

The work is scheduled to begin Monday, May 16, following Commencement Weekend, and be completed prior to the beginning of the fall semester.
