Updated: Lake, Pitkin routes impacted

Updated 12:15 p.m. July 24 Traffic flaggers will be on Pitkin Street from Meridian Avenue east to the Visual Arts Building starting Monday, July 27 through August 7 to accommodate utility work. Both east and west traffic will be allowed to pass, but expect delays. Original post (July 17) On Monday, July 20, sidewalks on Lake and Pitkin streets around the construction fence for the stadium site will be shifted into the construction fence zone. On Lake Street, the construction fence will come out onto the street, and a protected walkway on Lake Street will be created to allow safe movement for pedestrians and bike riders. On Lake Street adjacent to the Aggie Village site, the construction fence also will be expanded over the sidewalks. Two lanes for campus traffic will remain. These shifts will remove street parking along this section of Lake Street on the north side of the street between Whitcomb Street and the arboretum, and on both sides of Lake between Whitcomb and Center. Parking along this section of Lake Street has not required a university permit. Utility work also will be performed on Pitkin Street near the Visual Arts building.
