Campus Road Changes

Upcoming campus road construction projects will require the closure of more than half of each roadway section during its construction period. To facilitate these projects, vehicle traffic along University Drive (the campus loop road) will be changed to one-way, moving counter-clockwise-north on Lindley Avenue, west on Plummer Street and south on Etiwanda Avenue.

To minimize disruptions, this system will begin toward the end of the spring 2002 semester and continue through late 2002 for the entire campus loop road. Access will be provided to parking and service areas during construction. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

Construction project information, as it changes, will be updated on the Facilities Planning, Design and Construction Office's website at www-admn.csun.edu/facplan/.
