Rutford Avenue Closure

December 19, 2019

The new year will bring big changes in vehicular and pedestrian traffic routes to support both the Sciences Building construction, as well the Campus Landscape Enhancement Project (CLEP) Phase III.

In support of the Sciences Building construction, effective December 30, 2019, a portion of Rutford Ave. between the new building and the Central Energy Plant (EP) will be closed until April 1, 2020. During this time, it will be closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

Also closed will be the intersection at Rutford Ave. and Drive D. Those needing to access Rutford Ave. from the west will need to do so either from Franklyn Jenifer Dr. to the south or Synergy Park Blvd. / Loop Rd. to the north.

The parking lot in front of Physics Building (PHY), Lot L, will also be closed permanently.

Access to Rutford Ave. from the west through this intersection will be closed permanently starting December 30, 2019. Rutford Ave. from Loop Rd. southbound will be permanently restricted to service and emergency vehicles only starting January 6, 2020.

As a part of the CLEP [Campus Landscape Enhancement Project] , Rutford Ave. will become a pedestrian promenade and vehicle traffic will be largely restricted once this project is complete.

A portion of Drive D eastbound from Rutford Ave. will be re-opened December 30 for pedestrian traffic only. This route will be fully wheelchair accessible.

Thank you for your patience as we work through this process. We will update you in the new year.
