University Avenue will remain open to traffic. The week of April 23rd there are no anticipated changes scheduled for University Avenue. The contractor will continue the reconstruction of the University Avenue eastbound lanes and traffic will remain head-to-head on to the westbound lanes of University Avenue from Hackett Road to Magnolia Parkway. The lane closures will be in effect for approximately three to four months, depending on the weather. During this time, University Avenue will remain open and access to the frontage roads will remain. Please see the attached map showing the construction zone highlighted for next week.

For safety purposes, please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth on the closed lanes. It would be advisable to stay behind the sidewalk on the property side during the reconstruction work.
