Traffic Advisory: Aug. 31 Boiler Delivery On West Campus

Traffic may be slowed while a large boiler is delivered to Coal Pile Drive


Motorists traveling along the north part of West Campus should expect delays between 9 and 11 a.m. Aug. 31 as Facilities Management delivers a 60,000-pound steam boiler to the West Campus Steam Plant. The delivery is part of Duke's renovations of the historic plant.

Starting at about 9 a.m., a large truck will slowly travel from Morreene Road to Erwin Road, before turning onto Research Drive and parking on Coal Pile Drive. Road crew members will be stationed along the route to support safe movement of the delivery truck and general traffic.
