Road work scheduled for Locust-Stewart intersection

A portion of Locust Street south of the Stewart Street intersection will be closed from now until 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 20. The purpose of the closure is to allow Structural Maintenance to repair the existing road surface with a concrete asphalt material. North- and southbound traffic will be detoured through Williams Street or Arrowhead Drive.

Traffic control is scheduled prior to the start of classes to minimize the impact of increased student traffic. A minimum of seven days after the concrete pour is required before the road can be reopened.
