Traffic changes

Temporary change to on-campus traffic patterns

Campus and Community

As work continues on the new pedway linking the Chemistry-Physics building with the University Centre, there are temporary changes to traffic patterns.

Effective Monday, Oct. 24, the one-way drop-off lane in front of the Chemistry-Physics building will be temporarily converted to two-way traffic.

This will provide access and egress to the Bruneau Centre, area 17 parking and the main entrance of Chemistry-Physics. Work will begin this weekend to implement the changes.

This temporary traffic diversion will be in place until erection and exterior work on the new pedway is completed.

Alternate drop-off locations

This may increase vehicular congestion for traffic entering to the Bruneau Centre, area 17 parking and at the main entrance of the Chemistry-Physics building, off Irwin’s Road. Users are asked to make use of other south campus drop-off locations, such the main entrance of the Education building, R. Gushue Hall (Main Dining Hall) or the drop-off zone adjacent Doyle House on Livyer’s Loop.

Inquiries concerning this project can be directed to Chad Ballah, facilities engineering and development, Department of Facilities Management, at 864-3575 or by contacting 864-7600 after hours.  The general contractor for this project is CAN-AM Platforms & Construction.

Facilities Management appreciates your co-operation during this important upgrade to campus infrastructure.
