In order to improve driver and pedestrian safety at the intersection of Tri-Centennial Drive and Fuller Road, construction has begun on replacing a traffic signal with a roundabout.
Tricentennial Drive East, leading from Fuller Road into the main campus, will remain closed until 10/18/2010. Road construction will be
completed on 10/17/2010. Access to Fuller Road will be permanently reinstated on
10/18/2010 at 7:00 am. Temporary pedestrian sidewalks will continue to be utilized until
the road construction is completed on 10/17/2010.
Construction crews will be paving and completing road work each night from 7:00 pm to
6:00 am in order to reduce the impact on traffic. The new traffic pattern for Fuller Road
and Tricentennial Drive West will be in effect starting 10/18/2010. Temporary
pedestrian sidewalks will continue to be utilized until the road construction is completed
The pedestrian pathway will be from the existing sidewalk at Freedom Quad entrance (the intersection Jose Marti Drive and Tri-Centennial) to the existing sidewalk on Tri-Centennial drive across from the entrance to Empire Commons. The pedestrian pathway will be defined with barrels and snow fencing; additionally, there will be temporary lighting in place.
Access to these locations is scheduled to be maintained during construction, although vehicle traffic may periodically encounter delays.
