Beginning July 15, portions of Campus Drive will be closed over several weeks to "through traffic" as part of an ongoing construction project to install piping from West Campus to assist in the cooling of buildings on East Campus.
The closures are taking place so crews will have full access to Campus Drive for 24-hour construction. The work includes tearing up the road and laying pipe. Crews will be on-hand to help direct "local" traffic for residents who must travel along Campus Drive.
Here is the breakdown of when and where construction will take place, which runs from July 15 to Aug. 9:
