University Drive roadwork
Upgrades to campus services along University Drive continue between the Grant building and the three-way stop at College and University. This section of University Drive is open to alternating local traffic from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with flaggers managing traffic flow. Other traffic continues to be detoured via West Campus Road for access to P3, the Boathouse, and Sneq’ wa e’lun (Blue Heron House) between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Completion is expected to July 26.
West Campus deferred maintenance
Work continues in and around the LTA and the REC centre, with the Recreation centre now fully independent of the LTA. For the safety of all campus users during increased construction activity, additional road signs have been installed along West Campus Road reducing the speed limit to 10km and indicating where construction vehicles are turning.
All staff, students and visitors to campus are reminded to obey the posted speed limits and watch for flag people who may be directing traffic.
Safe driving on campus is essential to everyone’s wellbeing.
Parking below P7 adjacent to the Sherman Jen Building is complete and open to all users. Twenty stalls have been added below P7 to compliment the addition of seven stalls in upper P7, for a total of 133 spots available to users. This includes 2 accessible spots. On the west side of Sherman Jen, four EV charging stations and two accessible spots are avaialble.
