University Drive roadwork
The excavation work along University Drive is now complete. The detour to P3, the Boathouse, and Sneq’ wa e’lun (Blue Heron House) is no longer in place and major disruptions to traffic are finished. There will be minor disruptions for the remainder of the summer as we complete this phase of the project. Advance notice of this work will be posted in future Crossroads campus progress reports.
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.
