East-West Athletic Spine


The East-West Athletic Spine is an existing corridor that connects the Dutch parking area on the west end with the Baseball field on the east end. The core of the proposed spine is centered and balanced around athletics and recreation with the Physical Education and SEFCU Arena buildings. The spine offers connectivity to the Purple path around University Drive, varsity athletic venues and recreation fields, Indian Pond and northern access to residential quads, Campus Center and the future Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) route. The project would provide many opportunities along the corridor including creating a unified spine and connectivity from one end to the other through the installation of new and consistent pavement materials, landscape plantings, site amenities, lighting, while improving vehicular, parking and pedestrian conflicts, providing fa├žade and access improvements to existing buildings, and adding wayfinding and signage.
