Summit Street Construction Update: Two-way Traffic Resumes in Part of Project Area
Beginning Tuesday, July 5, two-way traffic will resume in the construction area from East Campus Center Drive to Whitehall Boulevard. That section of roadway had been reduced to one-way, eastbound traffic since early March as part of the Summit Street: Building a Better Way Improvement Project.
One-way, one-lane eastbound traffic will continue on Summit Street, from Fraternity Circle to East Campus Center Drive. The Johnston Drive intersection continues to be closed while work continues on the first roundabout. Additionally, the north end of Ted Boyd Drive will now be closed, meaning the only entrance to the Student Recreation and Wellness Center is from the south end of Ted Boyd Drive, via Campus Center Drive.
With these changes, PARTA will be adjusting its service for the Stadium Loop route over the next few weeks. Please check the PARTA website for the latest updates.
