Transit and parking lot updates during East Drive closure due to repaving/speed table work

Repaving and speed table work on East Drive between the intersection of Bartle Drive and lot U will begin Monday, June 13. This portion of East Drive will be closed and traffic will be detoured. Signage indicating detours will be posted. Access to parking lots U, T and the S lots will be maintained via the detour.
