Several construction projects will begin in May as the campus transitions into the summer months.

“These projects are designed to make improvements to infrastructure and move forward with capital projects during the summer semester when they will have the lowest impact on the campus community,” said Wendy Peacock, Facilities Management director of Construction Management.

Detailed maps of all the projects listed below can be found on the Facilities Management Closures and Outages page.

West Samford Avenue Road Closure: A section of West Samford Avenue from the Duncan Drive intersection to just in front of Goodwin Hall will be closed May 16 – July 1. Existing raised crosswalks will be removed, and new raised crosswalks and sidewalks will be installed in support of the College of Education building. The road closure will extend onto Duncan Drive where a lane shift will take place.
