West Street Closure

West Street from Mitchell to Nedderman Drive will be closed this Thursday starting at 9:00 a.m. The street will not re-open until late Sunday afternoon. This closure will allow us the time needed to install new ADA ramps and replace the concrete drainage valley which is poor condition because of past flooding and heavy traffic on this street. During this closure anyone needing into Parking Lot F-10 should use Nedderman Drive and turn right on to West street up to the parking lot entrance. Students needing into Parking Lot 47 should use Nedderman Drive or 4th Street during this period. We will have signage on the barricades at West and Mitchell.
