Temporary Traffic Impairment West of Wellness Center Construction Site

Due to Wellness Center construction requiring the use of a crane, the road connection from Centennial Hall and Parking Lot F to the road around the Campus Mall will not be available October 2 through 9. The roundabout at the main campus entrance will remain open, but a flagman will be present to direct traffic during crane lifts. The only section of the road that will be closed is the section by the main entry that turns south to the residence halls. Parking Lot F and the west entrances to Centennial Hall will be able to be accessed from the south service road. Please refer to the image below.
