South College Drive to be closed April 25

Both lanes at the south end of South College Drive will be closed to traffic from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, April 25, while a crane lifts a new energy recovery ventilation unit onto the roof of Buchanan Towers.

The ventilation unit is part of the PW691 BT Kitchen/Bathroom Renovations Project that started in February and is scheduled for completion in May.

Vehicular access to all south campus parking lots will be maintained during the closure. Flaggers will coordinate vehicular access to the fields. Pedestrians will be able to access the university tennis courts and fields through the flag plaza on the west side of South College Drive. Bicyclists will need to use Bill McDonald Parkway or the service road east of Buchanan Towers and Fairhaven as alternate routes to central campus.

The delivery of the crane on Bill McDonald Parkway may also slow traffic.
