Traffic Advisory: Part of Towerview to Close Friday

Asphalt repair will close road between Circuit Drive and Erwin Road

Motorists using Towerview Road will need to detour from this main road on West Campus to avoid asphalt repair work. 

From 6 p.m. Friday, May 1 to 6 a.m. Monday, May 4, a stretch of about 1,500 feet of Towerview will be closed from the Circuit Drive intersection to the Towerview-Erwin Road intersection.

A detour will be established to move all traffic – including Duke buses – around construction. Duke community members and visitors will be asked to use Circuit Drive, Erwin Road and Cameron Boulevard to move around work.

Riders on Duke buses should expect slight delays to the PR1, LaSalle Loop and H5 routes. 

During the construction, the entire portion of Towerview will be closed to all traffic except emergency vehicles. 

As part of the work, which Facilities Management will oversee, signage will be placed at six intersections on the west side of West Campus to alert motorists of traffic changes. Staff will also be available to direct traffic.
