Recommended bike routes for safety, fastest travel during construction

Activity at several construction zones on campus is picking up this fall, and university planners are strongly recommending that students, faculty, staff and visitors who ride their bikes to and through campus avoid construction-traffic heavy areas. In particular, construction traffic is expected to increase starting today, October 12, along the West Pitkin Street and East Drive corridors at the Chemistry and Biology Building sites on the east side of campus, and on West Lake Street south of the stadium construction site on the west side of campus. This map shows recommended routes onto campus and through campus to avoid areas with heavy traffic. Bike riders are reminded that they must obey all traffic signals and right-of-ways, just as they would if driving a vehicle, including stopping at stop signs and obeying directions from traffic flaggers.

October initiates new campus construction project

October 1 will mark the first day of construction on the university’s new Biology building, when the construction fence officially encloses the construction site and parking in lot #547 closes.

  • Expect delays on nearby Lake Street, Pitkin Street and East Drive, while utility work for the two buildings is completed. Over the next several weeks to months, traffic may be reduced to one lane, monitored by flaggers.
  • All traffic, but particularly bikes and pedestrians are encourage to avoid the intersections of Lake and East, and Lake and Pitkin. They also should avoid traveling west on Piktin Street directly north of the construction site (west of East Drive) because of heavy construction traffic to and from the site.
  • Due to increased traffic from construction equipment, it is especially important for individuals who are riding bikes to obey all traffic laws, just as they would if driving a vehicle, including stopping at stop signs, yielding right of way, and following flagger directions.
  • People who have routinely parked in lot #547 should consider parking in the new lot on Research Drive. More information about parking availability.
The Biology building, and its companion Chemistry building, slated to be built next-door with a start date this winter, will help complete a science mall on campus, including existing buildings Yates Hall, Microbiology, Anatomy-Zoology, Environmental Health, Pathology.
