Construction Along Campus Drive Shifts Bus Stops

Work to remove two houses for new Arts Building starts Dec. 21

The demolition and removal of two former faculty houses on Campus Drive will impact two bus stops, but not traffic.

The work is the first phase of construction to add Duke’s Art Building at the Campus Drive-Anderson Street intersection. Beginning last week, Duke buses ended use of stops immediately off the cross section of Campus-Anderson to avoid construction.

Changes include:

Campus Drive at Anderson StreetWestbound, served by C1, C3, C4 and CSW routesPassengers can now board westbound buses at the Nasher Museum of Art westbound stop, located on Campus Drive halfway between Oregon Street and Alexander Avenue. Another option includes a relocated stop at 2114 Campus Drive.

Anderson Street at Campus DriveWestbound and eastbound, served by C4 and CCX routesPassengers can board buses at the new, temporary stop, located about 250 feet north on Anderson Street, across from the Sarah P. Duke Gardens entrance.

Demolition and removal of the two houses will last from Dec. 21 to Jan. 8, weather permitting. During work, all lanes along Campus Drive and Anderson Street are expected to remain open.

The two bus stops will stay adjusted to new locations throughout the duration of construction of the Arts Building, which is expected to last until September 2017. Sidewalks alongside the construction area will remain closed to pedestrians as well. A crosswalk has been added at 2010 Campus Drive to move walkers across the street.

The two former faculty houses were offered for sale earlier this year. For more information, see this Duke Today story.
