Construction Deliveries Impacting Lombard Street Traffic
Major construction deliveries scheduled to occur on three separate days (Oct. 17, Oct. 26, Oct. 28) during the next two weeks will likely impact Lombard Street traffic for brief periods of time, and create temporary access issues on the north side of campus.
Portions of Lombard Street - between Harrison and Gaines streets - will be impacted for brief periods as the trucks make the turn at Harrison, and when they are backing into the construction site. Brief disruptions to normal traffic may occur with each truck.
Pedestrians should avoid using Lombard Street between Harrison and Gaines streets on these delivery dates, and are asked to stay clear of the general construction site area.
Vehicular access to the north side parking lots may be impacted during deliveries. The McCarthy Hall parking lot in particular may be closed off for several brief periods on these days.
For questions or concerns contact Security, ext. 6104, or Physical Plant Services, ext. 6359.
