Sidewalks in Construction Area

Work on the new West Campus Center Drive, which will be located off of Summit St. between the R12 Schwartz Center parking lot and the Campus Center commuter lot, has begun. 

  • As a result, some of the old pedestrian pathways in this area have been temporarily removed until the project completion.
  • Individuals parking in these lots should avoid walking in the construction zone.
  • Pedestrians are asked to use the sidewalk located at the West Campus Center Drive/Summit St. intersection. Pedestrians can also walk around the lower portion of the C-Campus Center commuter lot to access the R12 lot and the Schwartz Center. 
  • Summit St. in front of the Student Center, Bowman Hall and the Schwartz Center will remain open to two-way traffic, up to Morris Road. Work in that area is expected to begin in the coming weeks.
  • For further information on the Summit St. project, contact the city of Kent's Division of Engineering at 330-678-8106 or email
