The recreation center fencing is up and delineates accessible sidewalks skirting the construction site. Access to and from University Village will be on the SW side of Strong Street and the NE side of Warren street. Parking will be open around the construction site on both Strong and Warren, but eliminated on Van Houten between Strong and Warren. Please be cautious and reduce speed to 20 MPH on Portsmouth in front of the recreation center site due to truck traffic on an offsite. The construction will extend through the 2014/2015 academic year and be complete in June 2015. These traffic measures will be in place for the duration of the project.
Main entrance construction will commence the week of June 1 and will be complete in late August. Traffic will be reduced to campus entry only, with traffic exiting through the main lot and Portsmouth or via the Kenna exit to Willamette. Pedestrian access will be on the NW side of the main entry or SE side of Shipstad. The main entrance will be open to incoming traffic at all times. Drive carefully when encountering possible gravel road conditions, and please keep speed to 10-15 MPH through the area. Sidewalk and road closure signs will be set up to guide drivers. A map is available on the Facilities Planning and Construction page at www.up.edu/facilitiesplanning.
