Hilltop Avenue Lane & Sidewalk Closure Set for March 8-9

Due to last weekend’s inclement weather, the planned construction work will occur this weekend on Haggin Hall. A portion of the south lane of Hilltop Avenue and the adjacent sidewalk will be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic on Saturday, March 8 and Sunday, March 9. The section of Hilltop Avenue between University Drive and Rose Street at the roundabout will be impacted. The Rose Street Garage (PS#2) will remain accessible.

Flagmen will assist with directing traffic. Pedestrians should use the north sidewalk in the construction area. Drivers and pedestrians are encouraged to use caution as they navigate the area.

The project is scheduled to conclude by Sunday, March 9; however, the work is weather-dependent and the timetable is subject to change.
