Third and Eastern sidewalks to be closed
Due to public safety concerns, pedestrian access will be eliminated around the construction site at the northeast corner of Third Street and Eastern Parkway.
The Third Street sidewalk from the corner to the Cardinal Shuttle stop just south of the Oval is being closed immediately. Also, the sidewalk from that corner east on Eastern Parkway is being closed up to the Natural Science Building.
Fencing and signage will be installed to mark the closed sidewalks. Construction should be completed and the sidewalks reopened by March 1.
In addition, the Third Street sidewalk south of Eastern Parkway near the Engineering Graphics parking lot will be closed soon for utilities work. During that weeklong project, students will need to cross Third Street near the entrance to the Engineering Graphics lot, proceed north on Third, and cross back at the Eastern-Third Street intersection.
This change also will be marked with signage.
