Traffic Advisory: Road Repairs on West Campus

Work will take place Oct 14 and 15

Motorists traveling on West Campus may need to allow for additional travel time on Oct. 14 and 15 around three locations.

Road work will begin at about 5:30 a.m. Oct. 14 by the intersection of Yearby Avenue and Flowers Drive. Crews will close off a 60-feet long patch of pavement to all traffic in order to repave a portion of the road. Mike Leezer, construction coordinator with Facilities Management, said work will last until the afternoon, when the repaved road will be left to dry.

The work area will remain closed to traffic, but Duke community members will continue to have access to the DN and GC parking lots.

Following work along Yearby, construction will move to Research Drive in front of the North Building to repair a 140-feet long stretch of road, closing one lane. Crews will be on-hand to direct traffic as asphalt is fixed. Work on Research Drive is expected to take place throughout the afternoon of Oct. 14 and may resume the morning of Oct. 15.

The same work will take place on Circuit Drive, near the loading dock entrance to the Levine Science Research Center. A 40-feet length of pavement is receiving repairs and work will likely begin Monday afternoon, Leezer said. Construction may extend into Oct. 15, but one lane of traffic will be maintained during work.
