The university is investing in improvements to support transportation and parking changes related to the upcoming relocation of Cannon Drive, expected to begin as early as September. West campus construction will begin this week and run through the summer. The work will enhance shuttle service, increase capacity, create easier entry/exit points and add traffic signals.
In addition, work to provide enhanced access to west campus will take place at Lane Avenue and Carmack Road as well as Kenny Road and Carmack Road. One specific change is the installation of a traffic signal at the Lave Avenue entrance to the Waterman Agricultural and Natural Resources Laboratory.
Specific traffic impacts and dates will be communicated so that motorists may plan accordingly. Click here for construction updates.
