Upcoming Road Closings Part of Summit Street Improvement Project

As part of the Summit Street: Building a Better Way improvement project, the East Campus Center Drive/Summit Street intersection will be closed May 16-22. During that time, motorists will not be able to access East Campus Center Drive from Summit Street or from Campus Center Drive. Barricades will be posted to prohibit traffic on that stretch of roadway.

Johnston Drive also will be closed to traffic for several weeks beginning Monday, May 16, to allow for construction to begin on the first roundabout. Detour routes will be posted for Johnston Drive. Access will be open to the Power Plant and Student Recreation and Wellness Center parking lots while the north half of the roundabout is being built.
