Projects continue to transform West Lafayette campus as new academic year gets underway
Some construction and road projects will continue on the West Lafayette campus as a new academic year gets underway. In addition to campus projects, projects throughout the city of West Lafayette could also have an impact on travel.
The following road, sidewalk and parking restrictions will be in place in the coming months:
Dudley Hall and Lambertus Hall: Work on Dudley Hall and Lambertus Hall continues as the project is expected to transform the area near the Northwestern Avenue and Grant Street intersection. While construction is scheduled to be complete this fall, Grant Street between Northwestern Avenue and the access road north of the Purdue Memorial Union will remain closed to vehicular traffic through mid-December for continued bicycle track and utility work. Pedestrian and bicycle traffic is still being maintained along both sides of Grant Street with occasional detours near Grissom Hall. Pedestrians and bicyclists can access Knoy Hall of Technology from Northwestern Avenue.
Northwestern Avenue Parking Garage: The Northwestern Avenue Parking Garage top deck will remain closed through late September for workers to complete maintenance. The south half of the garage has remained open and continues to be available to motorists.
Other impacts for the fall semester include continued intermittent lane restrictions along Allison Road near Zucrow Laboratories and a closure for John R. Wooden Drive along the east side of Ross-Ade Stadium, which is scheduled to begin in November after football season.
In addition to these University projects, the following nearby roadway projects may impact the campus community:
- North River Road: North River Road between Happy Hollow Road and Dehart Street will remain closed through the fall as part of a combined sewer overflow project.
- Yeager Road: Lane restrictions will remain in place along Yeager Road between Sagamore Parkway and Cumberland Avenue through the end of the year as part of a reconstruction project.
- Cherry Lane: Cherry Lane west of Edgemont Street and at the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex will close in November after football season. The road will be realigned and a roundabout will be added to help accommodate the new Pete Dye Clubhouse.
More information about these projects is available on the WL Moves website. Updates on campus construction and road projects will continue to be posted on the Physical Facilities construction and travel notices webpage.
