Phase I: May - November 2011

Rerouting Vehicular Traffic

Beginning in May 2011, the University will install new bollards and check-in points to re-route vehicular traffic. The innermost driving route (see Figure 2) will be closed to regular traffic, while emergency and service vehicles will continue to have full campus access at all times. Drivers with special needs may use the free campus shuttle, or call public safety for transportation, to enter the vehicle-free campus core at any time. New features will be put in place to facilitate parking, including a vehicle turnaround in the Kennedy lot and digital signage denoting space availability for the SAC lot. The University will also add parking places on the east side of CEER.



Transforming Vasey Plaza

The first phase will also include the transformation of Vasey Plaza. The plaza will be widened to allow ramps on both sides for different mobility needs, and new hardscaping will provide convenient access to Vasey Hall from all levels. The space will become greener and will encompass an expanded outdoor dining and gathering area. Renovations to Sheehan and Sullivan residence halls will also be completed.
