Next Phase of Summer Campus Road Construction Begins Monday
One road opens, while another will be closed as part of summertime roadwork, which continues around campus.
Work is nearing completion on College Place, with the road scheduled to reopen Monday, June 22. Once College Place reopens, Euclid Avenue from Comstock Avenue to College Place will be closed through Aug. 7.
During construction, the main transit hub has been temporarily relocated to Comstock Avenue (southbound), mid-block between Euclid Avenue and University Place (at the back entrance to the Life Science Complex).
All Centro transit shuttles will operate this detour.
#344 South Campus
#240 Nob Hill
All city service
The #443 Connective Corridor shuttle will now be able to stop for boarding at both the Comstock Avenue shuttle stop in front of the Life Science Complex and the College Place bus shelter, before continuing Sims Drive and regular route.
The #143 Quad Shuttle will not operate to the Quad during this construction period. To avoid walking up a hill, it is suggested that customers utilize this shuttle to Sims Drive and specifically the shelter near Carnegie Library, which is level with the Quad.
The summer route for the #143 Quad Shuttle
From Irving Garage to Ostrom Avenue: Continue Irving Avenue to a right on East Raynor Avenue, right on Henry Street, right on Van Buren Street, left on Irving Avenue, right on University Place, left on Comstock Avenue, right on Adams Street and right on Ostrom Avenue.
From Ostrom Avenue to Irving Garage: Continue Ostrom Avenue to a right on University Place, left on Comstock Avenue, right on Euclid Avenue, continuing through campus on Sims Drive and Forestry Drive, then left on East Raynor Avenue, right on Henry Street, right on Van Buren Street, right on Irving Avenue to the Irving Garage shuttle stop.
Euclid Avenue will be closed from June 22 to Aug. 7 to allow for the reconstruction of the road, replacement of the water main and widening of the road to add a bike lane.
South Crouse Drive remains closed from University Place to the Quad 1 North Parking Lot to allow for underground utility improvements. Access to the Quad 1 Parking Lot is via Forestry Drive to the portion of South Crouse that runs between Archbold Gym and the Carrier Dome. That stretch of roadway, which is typically one way, has been configured to allow for two-way traffic during the course of the project. This closure is anticipated to be in place until Aug. 7.
