Construction Projects to Impact Traffic

As most students leave for the summer after this weekend’s graduation exercises, construction equipment will emerge from hibernation to begin several major projects around campus.

Beginning May 14, two major projects will impact transportation on main campus: the Yarbrough Drive steam tunnel project and the start of the Carmichael Gymnasium renovation. The first will last until students return for the fall semester, while the second will last nearly 18 months.

Yarbrough Drive Steam Tunnel Project (May 14–Aug. 1)

  • Yarbrough Drive will be closed to through traffic at the Mann South lot and Yarbrough lot.
  • Yarbrough at Stinson Drive will adopt a new traffic pattern for one-way traffic during the duration of the project.
  • Download a map of the project.

Carmichael Gym Project (May 14–Fall 2019)

  • Cates Avenue will shift to one way only between Morrill Drive and Dan Allen Drive. Traffic will not be allowed to flow westbound on Cates towards Dan Allen Drive.
  • Parking located directly in front of the Talley Student Union along Cates as well as approximately 30 spaces in the Carmichael lot will be blocked off for contractor staging.
  • Parking along Morrill adjacent to the Dail Softball Stadium field will be used for an expanded pedestrian walkway.
  • The Wolfline stop at Carmichael Gym will move approximately 200 feet south of its current location.
  • Download a map of the project.

To help the campus community navigate this work, please see each of the detailed maps. For up-to-date project impacts related to transportation please visit Transportation’s Construction Alerts webpage.

Pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists should obey all posted signs and use caution while traveling in these areas.

As a reminder, Transportation will operate under modified enforcement May 14–Aug. 15.

Any vehicle with a valid commuter or resident student-parking permit may park in any commuter or resident student parking area. Zones B and C employee areas are still enforced and vehicles must display the appropriate employee parking permit for these areas.
