Watch for Construction Traffic, Congestion Around Central Campus

During the weeks of Oct. 2 and Oct. 9, large precast concrete components will be delivered to the North Central Energy Plant construction site.

During the week of Oct. 2, this will involve large trucks entering Central Campus off N. Kings Drive behind Central High, unloading the components at the construction site behind the Giles Building, and then exiting campus driving in front of the Grady Cole Center and past Parking Lot #6 onto 7th Street. These deliveries will take place between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except for Wed., Oct. 4, when the deliveries will stop at 3:30 p.m.

During the week of Oct. 9, the large delivery trucks will cause less congestion on campus as they enter the construction site from Charlottetowne Ave., turning onto Sam Ryburn Walk, which is currently closed to pedestrians and all but construction vehicles. These deliveries will take place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Please be alert while traversing Central Campus the next couple of weeks and give the delivery vehicles a wide berth.
