Portions of Calhoun will close for two weeks starting Monday

Cougar News Services

Lanes on Calhoun Road between University Drive and Wheeler Street will close Monday and remain closed until Aug. 19, because of parking garage construction at Calhoun and University Drive.

The outside and inside lane northbound will be closed. The center lane will remain open.

One lane in each direction will remain open to traffic. The following will be closed to traffic:

  • The inside lane along the median of southbound Calhoun will close for two weeks.
  • About five feet of Calhoun on the north side of the Entrance 2 driveway will close, but traffic access to the College of Optometry and Campus Recreation and Wellness Center parking lots will remain opened. The work in the driveway will take no more than five days.
  • A portion of Entrance 4 will be affected by the demolition and construction of the new perimeter sidewalk around the parking garage, and details and a traffic plan will be reviewed in depth with the Traffic Enforcement department to minimize obstruction.
  • The sidewalk on the east side of the garage construction site will be closed to pedestrian traffic. Pedestrians can still cross along University Drive and walk on the sidewalk on the north of the construction site.

One lane in both directions will remain open to traffic, and all closures occur between University Drive and Wheeler. The remainder of Calhoun will remain unaffected during the two weeks. The road will be open again for the first day of the fall semester, Aug. 22.
