Two-Way Traffic Begins Next Week

The one-way campus traffic pattern is expected to transition to two-way traffic during the first week of December.  At that time, University Drive South, from the Integrated Sciences Complex to the Campus Center, will close for the construction of a new utility corridor and enhanced roadway and sidewalks.

The transition to two-way traffic will be a significant adjustment. When entering the campus from Morrissey Boulevard, traffic will curve left before the ISC to access parking lots and campus facilities. Public safety officers will be on duty to assist in the transition to the new traffic pattern.  The roadways will be restriped and proper signage and barriers will be installed.

Impact on Pedestrians

Pedestrians are urged to look both ways before crossing, utilize sidewalks and crosswalks, and stay alert.  The new two-way roadway will be busy with construction vehicles, buses, and other vehicles.

Commuters who currently are dropped off at the Campus Center are encouraged to be dropped off at the JFK MBTA station and board the Route 1 bus to campus.

Impact on Drivers

As a result of this work, the McCormack loading dock will be inaccessible and closed for more than a year.  All deliveries should be sent to the Central Receiving dock. 

In addition, the Quinn Roadway will close to through traffic beginning on Tuesday and will not reopen to general traffic; a segment will remain open for authorized/emergency vehicles only. 

Impact on Buses

To avoid the new construction site completely, proceed directly to the Bayside Lot or Lot D from Mt. Vernon Street. The free Route 3 shuttle bus will provide prompt service to campus from Bayside. See Getting Here for directions to Bayside.

All shuttle buses will continue service to the Campus Center and Clark Athletic Center. Some stops may need to be modified during construction.
