As of Feb. 24, 2010
BALLIF ROAD REMAINS CLOSED
Ballif Road at the entrance to the parking lot at the Tanner Dance Building remains closed through at least summer 2010 during construction of a utility tunnel. Vehicles accessing parking lots to the west will need to use Austin Road. The tunnel will extend almost the entire length of the HPER Mall which will be closed for that length of time. There will be three pedestrian “crossover” points maintained during the construction.
NEAR THE HEALTH SCIENCES EDUCATION BUILDING (HSEB)
The high temperature waterline (HTW) replacement project currently under way on both sides of the Health Sciences Education Building will eventually pass through the nursing building and head north on the east side of 1900 East to the hospital. This project will last well into the summer. The sidewalk west of HSEB, between Nursing and HSEB, will be closed for several weeks. The sidewalk east of HSEB is open for pedestrians going to or from the school of medicine.
Construction of a utility tunnel under the HPER Mall has closed the walkway through at least the end of the summer 2010. The area is now fenced, but pedestrian crossing points will be maintained between Milton Bennion Hall and LNCO, northwest of HPER and northwest of Gymnastics.
BUSINESS LOOP RESTRICTIONS
The business loop is restricted to one lane of eastbound vehicle traffic adjacent to the new business building construction. Westbound traffic on the loop is only open to the pay parking lot booth. This will last for at least another year and a half. Buses and shuttles will not enter the business loop but will remain on South Campus Drive.
HUNTSMAN CANCER HOSPITAL
Up to 50 heavy trucks will be using North Campus Drive to access the Huntsman Cancer construction site. Expect traffic delays of 1 to 5 minutes.
