Roadwork construction update: August 17-21

A summary of roadwork activities for the week of Aug.17. 

  • Crews on Stuart Street between George Street and Lower University Avenue are currently working on asphalt removal. This removal will progress as far as the entrance/exit to KGH on Stuart Street. In the coming days crews will be working in front of the entrance/exit; access will be maintained at all times, but vehicles can expect minor delays during the work.
  • As a result of the asphalt work on Stuart Street, there will be brief periods of time (between 30 minutes to one hour) where the underground tunnel connecting KGH and the parking lot beneath Nixon Field will experience delays. The contractor will have staff at both entrances to the tunnel to stop pedestrians while work happens overhead. Users of the tunnel can expect minor delays during this work and are advised to use alternate means if possible.
  • The intersection of Arch Street and Stuart Street is expected to be fully opened to traffic by Friday, Aug. 14. Access to George Street from westbound Stuart Street is expected to re-open early the week of Aug. 17.
  • As crews are completing asphalt removal on Stuart Street, sidewalks and curbs will be formed and poured.
  • A friendly reminder to staff and visitors of KGH that the contractor is closing parking spaces on Stuart Street as they progress with the asphalt removal. Please do not park in any space marked with barrels or cones; vehicles parked in these spaces will be towed.
