Central Drive closure planned for mid-November

Central Drive is set to close in mid-November to facilitate work for the new Engineering and Polytechnic Gateway project.

Through the project’s completion in September 2022, Central Drive and adjacent sidewalks will be closed between the Wilmeth Active Learning Center and Grant Street (refer to the map below). The area between the Potter Engineering Center and Michael Golden Engineering Laboratories and Shops will also be closed.
A new access road between Knoy Hall of Technology and the Electrical Engineering Building will provide service to the following facility docks:

  • Electrical Engineering Building
  • Mechanical Engineering Building
  • Potter Engineering Center
  • Knoy Hall of Technology

Access to the Grissom Hall and Brown Laboratory of Chemistry docks will be maintained.
Motorists and pedestrians should use caution in the vicinity, obey all signs and follow posted detours around Grissom Hall.
