Construction Creates Congestion and Closed Sidewalks in the Northern Sector of Campus

Electrical infrastructure work will be in progress at this location.
  • Hemphill to Center Street: Vehicular traffic on 9th Street between Hemphill and Center Street is tentatively scheduled to be closed to all on-street parking, vehicular traffic, and pedestrian traffic until September 10th. The installation of chilled water lines will be underway in the road.
