Summer in Tuscaloosa usually means an increased amount of visible construction around campus. This year is no different. As part of these projects, some roadways will be temporarily closed or have less than their full allotment of lanes open.
The third phase of University Boulevard enhancements will kick off after commencement. This phase will pick up where last year’s work ended. As in years past, University Boulevard will remain open, but traffic will be condensed to one side while the opposite side is under construction. This year’s repaving extends from the eastern on-ramp to McFarland Boulevard to Helen Keller Boulevard.
Portions of 2nd Avenue and Bryant Drive will also be closed periodically for work on the new Capstone Parking Deck in the current Moody surface lot.
Also, various small sections of roads throughout campus will be repaved over the summer. These closures should be limited and of a short duration. Faculty and staff should monitor Inside UA for news of planned interruptions and see the May 2 Inside UA article for maps of the planned closings.
