Summer construction projects affecting some campus roads and parking lots



Several main campus roads and parking lots will be closed or limited to traffic in the next several weeks as Facilities gears up for summer construction.

The Williamson Road/Heisman Street improvements focus on pedestrian safety.

Construction has started at the intersection of Williamson Road and Heisman Street at Fike Recreation Center and will require limited lane closures as the work progresses. Flaggers will be there to guide two-way traffic.

The project will improve pedestrian safety with enhanced street lighting and the installation of rapid flashing LEDs pedestrians can activate when they cross the street. The LEDs will alert drivers to slow down and prepare to stop at the intersection, which does not have a traffic light or crossing signals. The construction is expected to take about six weeks.

The area east of Cooper Library, including the E-15 Parking Lot, Delta Epsilon Court and adjacent sidewalks are closing as part of the Daniel Hall expansion project. A new path to Delta Epsilon Court will be part of the first phase of the project, providing access to the parking and service area north of Daniel Hall.

The parking lot to the east of Cooper Library will be closed due to the Daniel Hall expansion.

This construction is expected to last approximately 18 months, after which the renovated area will reopen with improvements to surrounding parking and foot paths.

Parking lot E-27 behind Douthit Hills Building B will be closed from May 15 to Aug. 3 to allow for a full parking lot renovation. Construction will not impact surrounding roads, but parking will be inaccessible until the project is complete.

Tentatively scheduled for late May, a section of Calhoun Drive near the intersection with Fernow Street will have lane closures to allow for repairs to the roadway. This portion of Calhoun Drive will be closed to traffic and will impact parking spaces in the cul-de-sac in front of Sirrine Hall.

Tentatively scheduled for late May, a section of Fort Hill Street near the intersection with Williamson Road will have lane closures to allow for repairs to the roadway. The area is too constrained to allow buses through while under construction. Two-way car traffic will be permitted and vehicles will be guided through the area.

Underground utility construction is continuing on McMillan Road, with road closures as needed.
